Import into drawing from database

Import into drawing from database

Import into drawing from database


I have a database up and running prefectly well with exporting from a drawing to the database.  I now need the ability to import from the database to the drawing.  I followed the information from this link here http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1047267 but I have run into some issues for some strange reason.

At first I had the issue of Error 13: Type Mismatch and no data was imported.  I then fiddled and found a way around that.  However I still have an issue.

I use a button on a toolbar to import and another to export.  Export works perfectly, everytime but the import just works intermittently for some strange reason.  Am I missing something here?

I've tested this so many times.  No errors, nothing, just doesn't import.  As well I'm planning on using a scritpt to run the VBA on multiple drawings.  I have a large quantity to work on and will be doing batches.

Any help would be great.




RE: Import into drawing from database

Ok for some reason everything appears to be working now.  Not sure what I did by you can mark this one as done.  I have both my script and my buttons working.  :)
