DST.LSP. Uses AutoCAD 2005 Field function to insert drawing name, date, and time of last save.

Simple Wins the Prize
As you know, an elegant and simple combination of commands to accomplish a task is often best. Date Stamp (Tip #1971) from Leonid Nemirovsky is a great example of this concept. The date stamp program (type DST after loading the LSP file) asks for a location, then inserts the current drawing name, along with the date and time the drawing was last saved. This routine takes advantage of the field feature in text inside AutoCAD 2005, resulting in a short and succinct function. It won?t work with earlier releases of AutoCAD.
