Changing Part Descriptions using excel

90 Views, 0 Replies

I have a set of part descriptions that need to be changed. Each part description corresponds to a part number. See the example below of what it would look like in AutoCAD.

 

123   screw

265   bolt

847   washer

 

But this list can get really long. Each part number and each description is a seperate text string or mtext string.

 

I plan on having an excel spreadsheet that has a list of all part numbers that my company uses with their corresponding descriptions.

 

I would like to use the part number to find the appropriate description and then change the description.

 

Hopefully this can be done automatically for a list of part numbers and their descriptions.

 

Is there a way to do this?
