TitleBlock iProperties

I made a VBA macro with Inventor 10 to create title blocks with custom properties. The same title blocks were exported to AutoCAD 2007 and worked very well.


We are currently using Inventor 2010 and 2011. The VBA macro and thus generated Title blocks work with Inventor Perfectly.


If the Title blocks are saved in dwg format and edited with AutoCAD 2007(2010/2011), then you realize that the attribute information was lost.


For testing, I created the custom properties manually and exported to dwg. These blocks kept the attribute information.


I compared the formatted text of custom properties of the two title blocks (manual and by VBA-macro ) and they are completely identical.


It worked once and now it no longer runs.

Can somebody help?
