Extracting attribute values to form a table or text file is an excellent application for data extraction and is useful for creating coordinate tables, bills of materials, schedules, and associated lists. The data is already available, so you can add it to a table or text file without having to retype the information. Extracted data is also associated with the table or text file. As a result, when you make changes to the extracted data in the drawing, the corresponding information in the table or text file updates.

In data extraction dialogue box click “next”.
