    Want to extract Excel data OUT to DWG or DXF or directly to CAD

    I have a need to find a fast, easy, and automated ( if possible ) solution to exporting text values ( point coordinate data** ) OUT from Excel, and IN to CAD. This can be DWG, DXF, or even directly into CAD.

    I cannot simply export the whole sheet as a space delimited file. There is a metric buttload of data in it that comprises 90% of it and I only want the 10% that are coordinate points. This is a recurring need, hence the desire to automate it.

    Is anyone aware of a program that will do this?

    ** - actually, they are three point arc values. However, I am willing to construct the arcs myself if necessary if I can successfully obtain the points.

    Sounds like an unusual but interesting application.
    If you provide me with an Excel file with examples and information about it, I can try to integrate an import function into my program GrblGru. From there you can export it as DXF.
