You have to firstly go into Excel Options and check the box to show the Developer Tab on the ribbon interface. On the left (or perhaps on your right depending on your PC), there should be a section called the Project Explorer.In here you should have a few things called Sheet1, Sheet2, Sheet3 and one called This Workbook. This will create an area for us to write our code, and if you’re feeling adventurous you can rename the module to whatever you like. Now let’s see if we can get Auto CAD® to do something.

Application On Error Go To 0 'This tells VBA to go back to NOT ignoring errors If ACAD Is Nothing Then 'Check to see if the above worked Set ACAD = New Acad Application 'Set the ACAD variable to equal a new instance of Auto CAD ACAD. Cells(n, 1) 'Put the Column 1 value into the Coords array Coords(1) = Sheet1. Add Point Coords 'Add a point in Auto CAD® at this location Next End Sub So there we have it – an introduction to using VBA in Excel to control Auto CAD®.I post my current code here for this topic, similar with your post. Secondly, if we want to check against this value, we have another potential problem.Option Explicit Sub Read Cell() Dim rg Koordinat As Range Set rg Koordinat = Active Sheet. Select Dim respon As Long If Msg Box(“Correct Selection? Floating point number variable types such as doubles can be a pain to deal with.Visible = True 'Once loaded, set Auto CAD® to be visible End If ACAD. Cells(n, 2) 'Put the Column 2 value into the Coords array ACAD. Obviously what we have done here only scratches the surface of the capabilities, but I’ll leave you to get creative with the that… As with all my posts I’d finally like to encourage you to subscribe to my blog.

Add Text Koordinat(0), Koordinat, Font Height ‘ col 2 ‘. Caption Set app CAD = Nothing End Sub And I still need some solutions to answer my problem above.I’m always going to be adding new content on here, and I’ll always try to explain everything the best I can. value, conditional format for value i = -1: j = -1 For Each c In rg Koordinat.

Add Text Koordinat(1), Koordinat, Font Height ‘ col 3 ‘. Hi, Now I understand what you are trying to achieve.Often (and yes, I mean often), I’ll write a little 6 line bit of code that saves me hours of work. Why people avoid learning this stuff is beyond me, because it really isn’t as hard as it looks.

Today I’m going to explain how you can write code in Microsoft Excel VBA that controls Auto CAD®. With Excel open, press Alt F11, which should open the VBA IDE (integrated development environment).

”, vb Yes No) = vb No Then Exit Sub Dim c As Range, i As Integer, j As Integer Dim lst Koord() As Double, lst Des() As String ‘list from excel ‘Shape Col2 Col3 Col4 Value, Color ‘Poly1 ?? Making a direct comparison such as if num1 = num2 will return false if there is any minute margin of error, which can sometimes be present in our Auto CAD drawings.

Incidentally this is sometimes the reason detecting a hatch boundary, or joining polylines can behave unexpectedly.

If you used the data above you’ll end up with a nice smiley face drawn in points!

Sub Main() Dim ACAD As Acad Application 'Create ACAD variable of type Acad Application On Error Resume Next 'This tells VBA to ignore errors Set ACAD = Get Object(, "Auto CAD.

Auto CAD® has its own type library containing all the object types that we are likely to need. To do this, go to Tools References in the VBA window, and look for an option called Auto CAD® 2010 Type Library, or whatever version of Auto CAD® you are using.
