I have an AutoCAD R14 drawing with a lot of objects (lines, arc, circles, polygons) distributed around the space.

Now I need to have the user input a range for X,Y from a given starting point and I need to get all the objects in that square and send the to separeate layers. Send circles to a layer called circles, arcs to a layer called arcs, and so on. Got the picture?? I'll try to illustrate this.

    x
    |             line                           circle                ----
    |  arc                                circle                        |
    |                         line                                        |
    |              circle                                                | User given x value
    |  polygon                       line                             |
    |                     polygon                                      |
    |      line                                          line          ----
    |                       circle
y--|---------------------------------------------
    |

    |-------- User given y value ----------|

 If you notice there's now a virtual square made of both user given values. OK, now I need to select all objects inside that square and send them to the layers as mentioned above.

 I hope this is not too complicated.

 Thank you!!! Please help me urgently!

 P.S. 430 points is all I have now. I would give 1000 if possible!
