Importing DXF data

Recommended Posts

I import Ordnance Survey data into VW on a regular basis. This data brings with it many as many as 40 differnt classes. At the moment I manually insert a prefix OS- in front of each class so that they will all become a subset of the 'OS' class. Is there a script that will automate this task and save me a lot of work.

Many thanks.

ClassName,NewName:STRING;i: INTEGER;


REPEATClassName:= ClassList(i);NewName:= Concat( 'OS-',ClassName );RenameClass ( ClassName, NewName );i:=i+1;UNTIL i = (ClassNum+1);

Sysbeep;AlrtDialog('Renaming classes is complete!');

END;Run (RenameClasses);
