Does anyone know how to write a lisp file that will use data from Excel to draw something.

I want to enter coordinates of points in Excel, and to create lisp file which will use these coordinates to draw lines, circles etc..

Thanks in advance.

Hi ercegs,

why don't you use the script command?

No. This is not good for what I need. I must have LISP file which can take data from excel spreadsheet.

...I must have LISP...

I am not familiar with lisp. But give us an example of your data. Is it like 3 point coords..?

For instance. I have four points (their coordinates) which makes one rectangle, and I'm going to have a couple of holes (circles) in it.

So, I want to enter vertex coordinates of rectangle and coordinates of holes in excel, and to make lisp to use it when I give him command "LINE" or "Circle".

For start, it would be great if I could just draw a simple rectangle using point coordinates from excel.
