Table cell to field link

Goofing off.

Trying to create a custom field evaluator where you can link a table cell to a field, I didn't see how to do this with vanilla cad.
Don't use this for actual work, kind of a proof of concept, or more like proof I could make it

which is more intuitive, a string address like excel "A1", or int row column?

to me "A1" is but since acad doesn't use that terminology, I guess it would be better to stick with 1,1

Unless you're asking about reversing the elements. A1 = column, row. but you asked for row, column. I'm not able to check right now which one acad uses.

LOL thanks! I realized  A1 = column, row after the first crash : )
AutoCAD shows the string address when it's selected, I think I'll go with that, otherwise I have to mentally count columns.
