Getting sheet numbers from blocks in separate dwgs

Hi all, I’m trying to make a program that can find the sheet page number inside a block in separate dwgs in a folder.
So far I haven’t seen a way to call specific values in a block from a dwg that isn’t open.

My preferred solution is using python to open each drawing, find the information, append it to a list, then close the drawing and open the next one.
What is the python syntax for finding a value in a block?

Hi @ssimpsonHU35B,

Have you tried the Camber package? There are lots of nodes for working with external drawings (i.e. not the currently-open document), so you don’t have to open anything up. Look under the “External” shelf in the package.
