extract attributes from multiple AutoCAD files (500+)

I have a requirement to extract attributes from multiple AutoCAD files (500+) and export it to a text file or multiple text files. The purpose of the extraction is to find the total count for each of these attributes for BOQ and procurement purposes. The extracted data (in text or CSV format) will be loaded into another application. The tool to do the bulk extraction should be a command line tool to be called from the application that will load the data. Any help in this regard is greatly appreciated

Dear All,

I have a requirement to extract the block attributes of AUTOCAD dwg files to multiple text files. I tested one tool called AutoDWG Attribute Extractor which uses wizard to extract the block attributes of multiple AUTOCAD files into one text, csv or xls file. But i want to extract the AUTOCAD dwg files throgh command line and every dwg file should create one text,csv or xls file after extracting the attributes. So, please guide me how can I use command line to accomplish the above.

Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.
Thanks to all.

For single file attribute extraction use eattext command on command line
