In AutoCAD I have a block with attributes attached which I can add info to by editing the attributes. I use this in a title block on several layout sheets. The problem is I have to copy the block from layout to layout after I change the info. OR I have to change the same info in the same block on different layout sheets. The info consists of data such as Builder name, Job number, etc. All this info comes from the MS Access program database estimating program I have written. The ideal solution would be to have a variable in autocad which would look up the required data directly from an access database. Since the dwg number and the estimate number is the same (the estimate number is in the access database) when the dwg is opened the info would be there in the corresponding variable.
