Hi,

 

I have a object data table attached to many polygon.  In this table i have 2 line of data.  I want to export in a tabloid like microsoft excel.  I know autocad have a command to do this...

 

Thanks a lot for your help

Hi,

 

the way I know is:

  • save your drawing and close it
  • create a new drawing
  • attach the previous drawing with command _ADEDRAWINGS
  • query the objects from the attached drawing (command _ADEQUERY) and create a list as a result (instead of querying the objects into the active/new drawing).

 

Good luck, - alfred -

Hi,

 

another way is to export your objects to ESRI SHP including the object data (command: _mapexport). It creates a DBase file (*.dbf) for the attribute data. The file can be opened in EXCEL.

Well, the quickest way to get your goal is probably this:

1] issue the _MAPVIEWTBL command

2] OK

3] select all the rows, and then CTRL-C

4] in Excel, paste them

Re: export object data to microsoft excel

i have a problem like this issue...

 

i have more features with some data properties in their schema

 

like this

 

feature1  geometry, prop1 (string), prop2(string)    etc.... etc...

feature2  geometry, prop2 (string), prop3(string), prop4(string)    etc.... etc...

feature3 ......

 

so i like to have a table in wich i can view a complete report of all features whit their properties

 

a manual way to do this il opening all data  tables, selecting coping and pasting in excel... but i'd like to find a command or macro way to do this automatically

 

is there a way to do this by a query ? or better whit a spatial query ?

 

thanks to all !

Hi,

 

you can try to use _MAPEXPORT to create a SHP-file, select your objectdata tables to be included in export.

After that is done you have 3 files created, a SHP, a SHX and a DBF ==> open the DBF in e.g. Excel.

 

Is that what you were looking for?

hi alfred

 

thank you very much for your answer

 

yes it could be a very good solution

but it does not work if i have only sdf geographical entityes in each feature. I've not defined any object classes, but only a schema and drawed geographical entities.

 

I'm an expert user in Autocad but i'm newbee in map, so i don't know if my metod is very good....

1) i've got cad drawings whit polilines and polygons,

2) i've created a query after having associated them,

3) i've exorted the queried entities to a sdf file,

4) i've modified the schema, adding some property data,

5) i've modified or added the geographical entities on each feature in the schema....

 

now i have to make a report of all the entityes in excel....

your method could be very good for me but it seems does not work whit sdf features....

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

>> but it seems does not work whit sdf features....

Create a new drawing, us _MAPIMPORT to import your SDF and don't forget to create ODTables from the attribtive data in the SDF, then you can export as described.

 

And if you alread have SDF, you can open the datagrid for each sdf and use copy&paste or export (under options, button on bottom of grid-view).

 

Good luck, - alfred -

Hi,

 

welcome @forums.autodesk.com!

 

>> how to creat the ode table from sdf file

When you have started _MAPIMPORT, selected the file to import the dialog appears showing the input layer in a list, the 4th column in the list is "Data" with content "<None>" for that layer, click onto that cell to make it active, you get a small "..." icon, click onto it and you get the options to convert the SDF-attributive data into ObjectData.

>> it seems that the sdf when imported have a different language

Sorry to not understand that, how can data have a languate (that's what I don't understand here).

 

HTH, - alfred -
