Description(Express Tools)

Reads the input .txt file and processes each line. If a block reference with the same handle and block name as the row it is processing is found in the current drawing, it applies the attribute changes to that block.

Note: Make sure the input file has the correct layout, otherwise the ATTIN command will not be able to import the data from the file. It must be in the same format that is generated by the ATTOUT command.

Method

Opens the Enter file name for attribute input dialog box that allows you to select an external .txt file.

The file contains information of the block references ordered in a table. The HANDLE and BLOCKNAME columns give the handle and block name of a block reference. The additional columns give the values of the block attributes. Each row represents a block reference and its values of the attributes. The ATTIN command will search for differences with the current drawing and adapt it according to the imported file.

Note: The string <> indicates that this attribute value does not apply for this specific block.
