Routine explodes blocks that have been inserted with attributes.

Jeffery Sanders sent Attribute to Text Explode (Tip #2104), a well-documented utility for operators. After loading the LISP code into AutoCAD, type SAFEX at the Command line and select the inserted blocks you want exploded. SAFEX only explodes blocks that were inserted with attributes. The normal operation of the AutoCAD Explode command reduced attributes back to attribute definitions and lost any values that you may have supplied in the attribute input. SAFEX converts the exploded attribute definitions to text and inserts the attribute value. This tip is a very clearly documented example of how you can use LISP to make AutoCAD your own.
