AutoCAD to Mysql database ?

Hello,

I have mysql 4.1 installed on a system running Windows Professional 2000.

I also have AutoCAD 2000 installed on this machine.

I would like to try and accomplish the following:

Some how extract information stored into a dwg (standard cad file) and write that information into the database.

I’m still at planning stage with as you can imagine but if anybody has any suggestion or ideas on how it could be achieved I’d be very grateful ?

writing to the mysql database is easy part, but i never used autocad before so do you know how to extract info from a .dwg file?

AutoCAD is in fact a VBA host so you can maniopulate the files and attributes directly. If you go to autodesk.com they have lots of VBA examples.
