AutoCAD automation

Hi all,

I am relatively new to AutoCAD, but being a person with a software engineering background. I'd like to automate my repetitive tasks.

I understand AutoCAD supports AutoLISP, VBA, ObjectARX, .NET. I'd like to find out which, or should I say, how can I combine the use of these technologies to automate my processes.

Here's a simple workflow.

1) My tool would read in parameters from a text file or excel sheet.
2) Apply the parameters to a chosen draft(a template).

Thanks to all help.
