block references itself

Hello, I've often tried to figure exactly what is going
on when you try to insert a block an it refuses with
an error msg of
"Block references itself "
I checked and their are no blocks in the drawing by
that name, so it must mean another scenario.
Appreciate any info.

How was/are you creating the block is it crated from another file, created by the wblock command, or by using the block command ???? ============== Well I'm not sure, since we work with drawings that have been started by others some times. Or in other words when ever I've seen the msg I cannot really remember doing anything other than normal, meaning blocks under similar circumstances have worked fine. I'm guessing it has something to do with (unknown) nested blocks in a wblock possibly??

Check the block references within the blocks in the block or just explode every thing.

The block itself contains another block with the same name. Use the 'rename' feature to change the block name.
