About Links in Files from Earlier Releases
Convert ASE links in drawings from Releases 12, 13, and 14 to AutoCAD 2000 or later
format. You can save AutoCAD 2000 links in Release 13 and Release 14 format.
Because AutoCAD 2000 and later releases store links in a different format than previous
releases, users of older releases need to convert links to use them with AutoCAD 2000
and later. Note the changes in terminology: key value replaces key column in Release 14; link template replaces link path name; and label replaces displayable attribute. You also need to create a configuration file that points to the data source referenced
by the legacy links
When you open a drawing that contains legacy links, the program attempts to automatically
convert them. If, for example, you open a Release 14 drawing that contains links that
point to a data source with the structure db3.ase.db3sample.computer(com), the program attempts to establish an exact, one-to-one mapping of the data source
In some cases, the legacy data source might not match exactly how the data source
is configured. For example, the legacy data source might specify a catalog that isn’t
specified in the data source. If the automatic link conversion is unsuccessful, you
can use the Link Conversion dialog box to establish a mapping between the legacy and
new data sources. You can also use the Link Template Properties dialog box to specify
new data source parameters for a selected link template.
During the conversion process, the data source mapping information is written to a
file called asi.ini. You can manually edit the conversion mapping information specified in this file,
don’t have mapping values specified in the asi.ini file. Once you have specified conversion mappings for a particular data source, the
program uses the settings specified in the asi.ini file for any additional legacy drawings you open that contain links that reference
this data source.
Save Links to Earlier Formats
Links created in AutoCAD 2000 and later can be converted to Release 13 or Release
14 links. AutoCAD 2000 and later links cannot be converted to Release 12 format. When
you use SAVEAS to save a drawing in the current format that contains links to Release
13 or Release 14 format, the links are automatically converted to the appropriate
drawing format. You must specify a conversion mapping as described above.
