Creating a Link Template
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
Note Before you create a link template, make sure the data source for the table is currently attached and connected.

To create a link template

  1. In Map Explorer, right-click the table and click Define Link Template.
  2. In the Define Link Template dialog box, type a name for the link template.
  3. Under Key Selection, select the column to use as the key by clicking the check box in the Key column.

    AutoCAD Map 3D uses the value in the key column to uniquely identify a record, so select a column or a combination of columns that contains a unique value for each record in the database.

  4. Click OK.
Note If the link template does not immediately appear on the Map Explorer tab of the Task Pane, right-click a blank space in Map Explorer. Click Refresh.
