Right now there is no easy way to do this. Do you know how to write VBA or
lisp code? If so I'll give my idea on how to do it, as of yet I haven't seen
anything out there to do this but it is possible.

First off the records in the mdb need to ge linked to the objects in the
dwg. Then create a OD table using the field names in the mdb file.Then for
each record read the values and fill out the OD table and attach it to the
object by the link between the two.Getting the link is the hard part for me
to understand I haven't worked with linked tables enough to understand
those. However I may be tempted to connect Scott McFarlane "the dbconnect
expert" or at least get his book on it. You might get lucky and he may
reply to a post if the topic looks interesting to him. I may try doing this
myself in the next few weeks so keep us posted. Good luck with it.
