Automatically Linking Database Records to Objects
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

If information in your drawing, such as object data, text, or block attribute data, matches information in a database table, you can automatically create links from each selected object to a matching record in the database table.

For example, if each parcel in a parcel map has attached object data that contains the parcel ID, you can automatically link each parcel to the correct record in a database of parcel information.

Or if you have district code stored as block attribute data and also have a table that has a column for district codes, you can automatically link each code in the map to the corresponding record in the table.

If no matching record is found in the database table, you can set an option to create the record.

If you are using block or text, you can set an option to use the insertion point point of the block or text as the label point for the object.
