Ok I have done my best to intergrate this together

The parcel I have has that UDF (CN) and we manually input the value.

I am erroring out here:
Code: [Select]
CN = .GetUserDefinedPropertyValue("CN")
Code: [Select]
Sub PickLwPolyAndGetData()

Dim MyCell As Range
Dim ACAD As AcadApplication
Dim LWPoly As AcadLWPolyline
Dim oParcel As AeccParcel
Dim ThisDrawing As AcadDocument
Dim Pt1 As Variant
Dim LWArea As Double, LWZ As Double
Dim CN As Variant


' Autocad Session handling
On Error Resume Next
Set ACAD = GetObject(, "AutoCAD.Application")
On Error GoTo 0
If ACAD Is Nothing Then
Set ACAD = New AcadApplication
ACAD.Visible = True
End If

Set ThisDrawing = ACAD.ActiveDocument


' select LwPolyline
On Error Resume Next
Do
Err.Clear
ThisDrawing.Utility.GetEntity oParcel, Pt1, "Select a Parcel:"
Loop While Err
On Error GoTo 0

   
    'get LWPoly data
'    With LWPoly
'        LWArea = .Area
'        LWZ = .Elevation
'    End With

'get oParcel data
With oParcel
LWArea = .Statistics.Area
LWZ = .Statistics.Perimeter
CN = .GetUserDefinedPropertyValue("CN")
End With


' write LWPoly data on worksheet
Set MyCell = ActiveCell
With MyCell
.Offset(0, 0).Value = "Area:"
.Offset(0, 1).Value = LWArea
.Offset(0, 2).Value = User1
.Offset(1, 0) = "Perimeter:"
.Offset(1, 1) = LWZ
.Offset(1, 2) = CN
End With

Set ThisDrawing = Nothing
Set ACAD = Nothing


End Sub

I have found that while you can change the value of UDP's in a parcel's properties, if the Site's Parcels UDP Classification Property is not set then it can't be retrieved.

Ok. The (CN) is [Unclassified].

As for the Sites. I have several Sites. (1,2,3) with parcels under each.

Just thinking about this alittle more. Is there a way we can hard code the UDP to be (Unclassified) within the script?
That way it show not error out on the objects that it will select. Or am I not quit following?

Can you post your drawing? And which version of C3D are you using?

OK, like I said before.... :-D Neither of these Site's Parcels properties have the UDP Classification set, so it will fail to get any UDP's.

Working! I just saw RICVBA revise his script to do multiple parcels at one time. I have tried to intergrate your code into his; but I can not select anything. Everything else seemed to match up.

Code: [Select]

In C3D select a Parcel (one with just a few sides, as it lists all the segments) and LIST it. The name to be used for dataValue will be shown.

Hint: AECC_PARCEL

Got it. Got to love all this stuff. So with the revised code, I can select things but it seems the T.C. value will not filter thru on the drawing you have. I can populate the name but not the tc for some reason.

Code: [Select]

You are overwriting the TC in the cell with the name:

                .Offset(iRow, 3) = TC
                .Offset(iRow, 3) = Name

Sorry to Bother this post again. I gotta ask; if I can set the VBA to send information to the parcels in Civil3d from the Excel Spreadsheet. So, basically reverse what we wrote. Is that hard to do?
thx

Yes, you can write back to the UDP's with oParcel.SetUserDefinedPropertyValue(propname, value). But getting the Parcel to write to will be difficult unless you include the Parcel's Handle when you write the data to Excel.

So I would guess you would have to originally import the parcels (UDP) into excel w/ it pulling the handle? Then to export from excel to civil I would need it to match the handle and transfer the requested fields over. Geesh.
