» Getting Coordinates From AutoCAD to Excel from Between the Lines
Back in 2009 I wrote a blog post showing one method to get the X and Y coordinates from AutoCAD into Excel using a script. Import X,Y Coordinates from Excel into AutoCAD While this was a workable method, AutoCAD is well known to have several ways to a... [Read More]

I and my fellow R/C Airplane geeks have been doing this since at least R14 to import airfoils readly available as .dat files.

OSNAPs OFF first!

Thanks for ur tip.
I knew this but had forgot.

You can also export the xls as a csv, rename the extension to txt, open in notepad, add the commands, I suggest PLINE, then save, and then rename extension as scr. phew!

I am having a problem:

When i load my script (scr) file in my ACAD 2008 (full version), it seems ACAD opens up the file but it stays looping forever.

I already tried adding the CLOSE command at the bottom of the scr file but still keeps looping.

I want to plot around 120 x,y points.

Please let me know.

Thanks

Wonderful!!!!

when i run a script, how can i plot the x section of a road in AutoCad 2007?

Gatatiya,

(Import X,Y Coordinates from Excel into AutoCAD). I found very very useful. If z is inserted, in the form ex:
2,3,4 u can see 3D lines. thanks. bye

Hello,
i'm trying to drow lines with a .scr but i need a command or way to write the .scr file in which every line start drawing from a new point(exactly the inverse of a polyline)
that because i need to do a route and not every line is attached to others

thanks

What you sound to be attempting is not easy, and perhaps better to do with a LISP file instead of a script. If you need some tips you can check out the peer experts in the AutoCAD customization forum.

Stuck on the prerequisite... How do I get the x-cell and the y-cell to merge together into one cell that displays as x,y?

My issue is x = 300 y = 200 and when trying to merge them I get "three hundred thousand two hundred" (300,200.00)

You don't want the cell format to be a SUM formula just a string/text.

Thanks!!

Why using notepad and an additional file? Do the same procedure in autocad command line and it will work in the same way: - highlight and copy in Excel - type "LINE" in AutoCAD command line - "insert" the coordinates (in the command line, not in the drawing window) - finish with "Enter"
