Bulk Parts List extraction from many draft files

Edgers

 

Anyone created a custom tool to extract parts lists from multiple dft's (from working sheet) and past into excel file sheet 1 or even into 1 excel file (sheet 1) at a time.

 

If so would you be kind enough to share....

Re: Bulk Parts List extraction from many draft files

I have developed an application that we use to create Excel files from parts lists, create pdf's, dxf's etc in a batch process.

Unfortunately I can't share it as it was paid for by the company I am working at and is quite specific to our parts lists formatting,

The developer forum will certainly help if you are prepared to get your hands dirty with a little (OK, probably more than a little) programming.

I know Jason Newell has many coding examples - one of which is extracting parts lists to Excel.
