Importing points?

Importing points?

Importing points?

Looking to import survey points into draftsight.

The points will be in CSV (comma separated values) format, PNEZD (point number, northing (y), easting (x), elevation (z), description).

I would like it to display the point number above description on screen at the appropriate coordinates.

I am not familiar with writing scripts, but I imagine that is the only way to do this.

I tried bring the CSV file into excel and write a simple script like:

(then list the coordinates)

Looks like I got points in appropriate spots, but how to I complete it with the point number and description?

Is there a way I could put the points in AutoCAD and then get them over to draftsight?

Thanks for any help.
