AutoLISP routine replaces text strings with an incrementing value for labeling columns and rows in a grid.

Replace Text with Incremental Value replaces text strings with an incrementing value, very useful for labeling columns and rows in a grid. After loading the LSP file, type Counter to activate the text edit tool. Enter an increment value (default value is 1). Next, select a starting base text. If the first character is a number (0 . . . 9), the counter will convert the string to a number. Otherwise, the next character will be used. (For example, if you pick text containing the value A with the default increment of 1, the next text item you pick will be changed to B and then to C and so forth.)
