AutoCAD 2008: Keep It Inside AutoCAD - Data Extraction Direct to AutoCAD Tables

Recorded 01/11/2009 at AUGI CAD Camp, Toronto:
AutoCAD has never had an easy solution for creating tables for use as parts lists, bills of materials, and schedules. The method has always been a laboriously manual method of extracting attribute data to an external file and then importing it back into AutoCAD. Not anymore. In this session, you will learn how to use new tools to add fields and extract block attributes as well as dynamic block properties directly to an AutoCAD table. Once create, those tables will automatically update when changes occur.
