Lisp routine no longer working in new versions of AutoCAD

We have used this Lisp routine (moveatt.lsp) in the past to update our title block when the revision sections get full.

There are only 8 revision lines attributed with our title block.

The routine would remove the oldest revision and then shift all remaining revisions down to open up line 8 for use.

 

I think it was around release 2009 that the routine stopped working for us.

 

I have attached the lisp routine and a sample of our border.

Can anyone figure out what is wrong with our lisp routine that it will not work in AutoCAD 2012?

 

Thanks for any help.

vfernando,

I exclude the timer function,
try the attached file.

vfernando,

moveatt function works, perhaps the external function (timer) is the problem,
that I can't see, if you post it I'll take a look.

Sorry Henrique but I do not know what the external function (timer) is.

 

Here is the error I get when I run the routine:

        "Select drawing Border :; error: no function definition: TIMER"

 

So It sounds like you are correct it has something to do with the "timer".

If you tell me how to get you that information I will post it.

 

Thanks.
