I have a title block made up of simple text and table. I want to make this title block with attributes. Can someone show me the simple method for creating such title blocks?
you can do this easily via tags I've attached is a tutorial to do exactly what you asked for it explains tags ( acad speak attributed blocks and how to do it for a title block) .. however to really get best out of it you need to be able extract or harvest tags from dgn to excel and back from excel to dgn, excel has great tools for creation of series auto filling and equations and most of us have excel already.
Now the problem is mstn doesnt come with this tool already built it requires you to use vba ( I think bentley should give us this tool partly built or customisable already but they dont) anyway if your great at coding then go for it ... I'm not so I bought an off the shelf tool(s) Caddpro from Adam Lambert .. which is very effective and inexpensive.. look at demo
others also sell this like Axion ( very expensive) and Flexitable from La Solutions UK ...
I have tried all these at one time or another and IMHO I personally prefer Caddpro... as it is not expensive, made by a fellow aussie msnt drafter so he understands what drafters want and has also custom tools for DOT work... which I use as I mostly do roads design drafting ..Enjoy..

Thanks Lory for your prompt response. Your attachment is appropriate for my question. I will try this and let you know.

As Lorys wrote, if using MicroStation V8i then tags would be a good choice. How does a title block with attributes fit your workflow? Is it your intention to read and update those attributes from an external data source, such as Excel or a relational database?

Thanks for the citation! FlexiTable can read and update tags in a DGN file. It can update multiple DGN files and models automatically. It's can read and write Excel files. A number of customers use it for title block update from drawing records stored in Excel.
