Creating a Drawing Index
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

To reduce the amount of time it takes to perform a drawing query, create an index. Instead of searching all location, property, object data, or database links to find matching data, AutoCAD Map 3D searches only the relevant index.

Note Whenever you open a drawing that includes database links, AutoCAD Map 3D automatically creates a database link index and keeps it in memory. To save this database index to the drawing, select the Store Links Index In Drawing File option. To set this option, select AutoCAD Options from the Setup menu. Select the System tab. This feature is especially useful when you edit your attached drawings directly.

You can create the following kinds of index:
