I have a client that I have been working with for well over 10 years.
They install pressure sewer systems.
Basically I have drawn up a basic design site plan showing a design layout of the system which they then install and then they ask me to update the drawing as an "as constructed" layout with any changes that have occured on the site.
These drawings were then sent as A4 pdf files to the sewer authority. All no problems, straight forward and simple!
Since then the authority have asked that the drawings be sent as cad format (in dwg of course!) with metadata info added. For the last couple of years I have done that and I have added the metadata info to a symbol as text attributes. As far as I have been aware that has not been a problem.
Now the authority is asking for an .dxf file with "pump well location and symbol is required in the cad file, the pump well feature requires a cell of same nature as file attached ie : level, type]" The file attached is an *.asc file.
The client has bought a survey system of some sort where they will now pick up the co-orordinates of the pumps and add all the relevant metadata info to an *.asc file and I have been asked if there is some way of importing that info into my cad system. This is now where I have come stuck! Does anyone know how I can do this and if so how?

Any help would be appreciated.
