You can access to a data table from a spatial file using the right-click menu over the file item itself, over a table from the file or over any UDS that refers the file, in the "SpatialManager" panel, to import its content into a new or the current AutoCAD drawing. You can also double-click over the file item itself, over a table from the file or over any UDS that refers the file, in the "SpatialManager" panel, to access and import its content into a new or the current AutoCAD drawing (this behaviour may be configured through the tab "Spatial Manager" in the "Options" window of AutoCAD)
