Don't have MEP or ADT. Does MVBlock support GetAttributes method? Can you post a sample drawing?

Here you go!

You'll have to save it down to 04.  We can't all be so fortunate  :roll:

<sigh of disgust>   :wink:    Be right back!

Here you go (again)!

Opened the drawing in AutoCAD 2007. For each AEC_MVBLOCK_REF, I get one anonymous block when exploding it. If I explode the anonymous block again, I get a regular block, from which the attributes can be easily extracted. So it could be a solution if all you need is a list of room names and numbers.

There is an arx error (ARX_ERROR: eNotThatKindOfClass) when I open it in ADT06 and all of the block are proxies (I can look when I get home)

You would normally use a schedule table, however I was unable to get the schedule to recognise the property set definations within the MVB's. Also when I edited the room names within one of the MVB properties, the changes were not reflected in the actual MVB. Do you have the file with the original Space Objects together with the MVB's?
