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.



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


PLease try the method posted today in this blog at http://autodesk.blogs.com/between_the_lines/2012/08/getting-coordinates-from-autocad-to-excel.html

Best Regards,

(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

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


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.

Best Regards,

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.


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"
