Given a good block name in the drawing with attributes, this utility writes attribute data to a specified text file.

Attribute Data Extractions (Tip #2114) by Robert Zipprich is a specialized LISP program that will require some tweaking to work properly with your computer and drawings. The main variables that you need to change include an output file name and the name of the block containing the attributes you want extracted. From there it's easy because the program runs as it is loaded (check the source code and make the edits before you test the macro). Given a good block name in the drawing with attributes, the attribute data is written to a specified text file. This utility is a nice way to help keep track of drawing header or border data that you can attach to other specialized applications monitoring saves or plotting activities.
