.BLK Files for Table Templates

Greetings bloggers,

Welcome to Novemember!!

Last week I was working on creating a standard table template for my department to use.

It would be used in combination with the "eattext" attribute extraction command. The template removed some of the attributes, re-arranged the columns they showed up in, and assigned a specific look to the table. This creates a .blk file.

What I found out, after a few hours of testing and odd outcomes, is....the .blk file has to be stored in a location that the user has permissions to change files in. AKA I can not store it on our "protected/locked-down" standards location that the general user only has "read" access to.

I thought I would pass this along incase others were curious about setting up a table template.
