is there a way to extract object properties in autocad to a spreadsheet?

i’m looking for a simple way to gather information about a group of objects (line properties) in autocad, in stead of just doing one at a time. i’m pretty sure acad has a way of extracting such information into a table like a spreadsheet, but i can’t remember how to do it. does anyone know how to do this?

    Before save you drawing, then use DATAEXTRACTION command (on menu Tools), the data extraction wizard is displayed. Follow instructions and you can save object properties (Color, layer, start point,height etc) from select objects, export data in csv, mdb, xls, txt files.
