Changing the Look of the Data View
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

Data View displays external data linked to drawing objects. You can change Data View, for example, to make a column narrower to fit better on your screen or to widen a column to display all the text.

You can change the font, color, and alignment of text in the column. You can also change the width and color of the column borders.

Note To preserve your formatting changes, be sure the Save Format And Style Changes With Drawing option is selected on the Data Source tab of the AutoCAD Map Options dialog box. If this option is not selected, formatting information for the table is removed from the current drawing when you close the Data View.

When you detach a data source, AutoCAD Map 3D erases Data View formatting information for all tables in that data source.
