    Changing a large quantity of drawings' sheet formats

    Dan Youngberg
      I'm looking to change all of the title blocks in a large quantity of drawings and I'm not sure where to start. With possibly over a thousand drawings it would be best if the process was automated, possibly with a macro. The two main challenges I see are as follows:

      1) Custom File Property Variable Names:
      I need to change all of the custom file property variable names in the drawings so that they match the current system. Or I suppose I could duplicate our current system's drawing templates, change the template's custom file property variable names, then import the old drawings.

      2) Drawing Sheet Format:
      I need to change the drawing sheet format for each of these drawings, and I know how to do it manually, but is it possible to write a program to make the computer do it to a group of drawings?

      The method I use doesn't have to be the prettiest, it just has to be fast, easy, and make the drawings look the same, but with current title blocks.

      Thanks for your help,
