Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Dear Planners,

I would be grateful to you, if you could guide me on how to establish a link between P3 schedule dates to Autocad layout in order to show ES and EF dates for each I-Beam placement in the Autocad layout. So that i could avoid of manualy updating scheduled dates for the I-Beam Layout in Autocad if there is any changes in P3 schedule.

As far as I know, it only work on AutoCAD latest version.

Predefine all text boxes which hold date value. One text box for each. Build a link table, Activity ID against text box name, 1 to 1. run a AutoCAD macro, fill the text box value by the linked ACT IDs date.

Dear Dhandapany,
I think autocad soft is not stable for your issues.
You must use the macro in Excel soft. because excel has a dynamic link with P3.
