I have a couple of attributes suing fields within a block. But they don't update on opening. I need to do a manual field update to get them updated to the lastest values.
Tried various combinations of "fieldeval", but this was no good. Why would this be happening?
Could it be that you have checked Save as an option to update the Fields and since you always Save just before you Close (you do this, right?) the Fields are current when the drawing is Open?
If this is not the case then their is something wrong with the Field and not FIELDEVAL.
Please mark any response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers your question.
I have checked on all the options available within "Field Update Settings" to no avail. Tried different numbers on the "fieldeval" settings too, but still no good.
The fields update on using the "updatefield" command. I was wondering if i can add this command within the acaddoc.lsp routine. But not sure what the command needs to be, such that all objects within the drawing are updated.
I had some LISP varialbew within these fileds, which would not update unless i used the FIELDUPDATE command. SInce then I'have started using USER keys within the LISP routine. This is a vialbe solution to my problem.
