TABLES in AutoCAD

I use them quite a bit for line, curve tables and legends. I love the fact that you can import/export them.

I have done one project in the 10 years I have worked here that used a line table and only two others with a curve table and those have caused me much grief.  Standard practice here for both cities and consultants to not make full copies of any plat available - only small copies of areas of interest that almost certainly will not include the tables, hence great and numerous hassles trying to get everyone the information they need.  Granted it should not be a problem but it is here, so I do everything I can to avoid them.

Storm and sanitary sewer pipe schedules. I wish I had 2006 to be able to use equations though.

We are just going to be able to get MText like abilities in our next release.

You can copy from excel and paste special into acad. You won't get the fomulas but you will get the data from the formulas.

as you may remember mark we do very long shade schedules which we seperate by floor. we use a couple basic formulas in our schedule but we couldn't find a way to link a formula across several tables. i like the idea but it's not developed enough for us yet unfortunately.

also our quantities are always changing so we really need the tables formulas to update after insertion. i don't think there's an easy solution for us but i'm open to suggestions
