     DWG Miner DLL is a FREE powerful ActiveX component for quickly extracting and setting data in AutoCAD drawing (DWG) files. DWG Miner DLL contains many functions for updating text values, updating block attribute values, setting layers on/off/frozen/thawed, setting external reference file paths, setting image file paths, creating XML files from drawing data, creating DXF files from drawings, saving drawings as different versions, creating Excel workbooks from drawing data, updating databases (SQL Server, Access, Oracle, Sybase, etc.) with drawing data, and much more. This product is compatible with all AutoCAD drawing versions and does not require AutoCAD to be installed. DWG Miner DLL is compatible with all software languages which support ActiveX controls including Visual Basic, ASP (Active Server Pages), Visual C++, VBA for Access, VBA for Excel, Delphi, and .NET. All methods are operable with Visual Basic while some methods (such as DataGridToArray) will not work with another language. However, the most important methods for extracting data from AutoCAD drawings should be compatible with any language that supports ActiveX.
