Hope someone can help me, I have done a good search but am having trouble finding a solution to my problem.. i am looking for a very simple object that displays the x and y coordinates of a point on my plan .. my aim to to export the list as a csv file then import it into a data base
I have really tried to solve this myself but am trouble?
hope someone can point me in right direction..
the object is simple and what i was after ! and David, you are absolutely right.. i need to covert the text values displayed for x and y and represent them as parameters so a to make a schedule out of them.. hmm, i'll go to work..
it doesn't seem as simple as it sounds.. if you have any advice it would be welcome!
my sincere thanks for your replies and help so far
So i have tried to find a way to place the object and have the x and y coordinates (once placed) to show up as object parameters.. but i think this seems like a circular reference, does that make sense?..
the x and y coords need to be parameters in the GDL script, before the object is placed.. but they aren't defined UNTIL the object is placed ! maybe I am thinking about this all wrong??
what i am actually trying to do is take the x and y co-ordinates from trees we have placed in CAD and import the tree ID, and the x and y coordinates into EXCEL, add other tree features then take the info to a GIS package.. (the last bit i can do, excel to GIS).. it's just cad to excel i have trouble with
if anyone in the community can shed some light that'd be awesome and much appreciated (even if it is to tell me to try something else!)
Finally with the help of Schedules and Lists you can to choose the parameters (eg: posX, posY) what you want to save to xls. (Its important that it has to be filled the Name of the parameters)
If I remember right the objects always give x=0 and y=0 when scheduled or listed. Writing the coordinates from the floor plan to an external .txt file might
