this code still does not work, can you help to make it work?
Try this version.
It was finding the file but there was a bug in the DCL syntax.

Give this a try, there is still lots of work to do as you will see. 
The command it A2T


Oh yea .. you will need .NET 2.0 or better to run this

Excellent beta! the program logic is correct but the table labels need to be corrected ie.
Block Table should be name of Block or one of the defined attribute tag eg. Door, Windows or Toilet so if Toilet there should be an attribute tag named Group such that wash basin, urinals, water closets can be grouped into one table named Toilets
There should also be header labels for Model Number, Tradename, Product and Material

I also need to tally up the duplicate blocks and provide a quantity column. There seems to be something weird going on with the row height, it doesnít want to stick in certain instances. 

Strange how the background on the form is black, I thought I hard coded it to be white..hmmm
