This is my first post to the forum. I'm using VW2008 and am having a problem with what I would have considered a simple process.
I have drawn a map (part of which is attached). I have then created a symbol (highlighted). This symbol is to mark all my setting out points on site. My plan was then to attach a system to record the X/Y values of these points, which I could then use as northing and eastings when setting out the real site.
I have spent the last two days reading this forum too no avail on how to do this. I did find posts from 2005ish and vectorscripts called Coordinate Dim and Benchmark XY. I've tried both these but neither will generate a report and seemed to be inaccurate.
I can use the stake object tool but, usefully, it will give me the Z dimension but not the X/Y.
I have read that VW2011 can do this but being a single user I can't justify the cost of upgrading at the moment. In addition Vectorscript may as well be Klingon. I have been able to install Vscript and use them but writing or modifying is beyond me.
Any ideas on how to achieve this gratefully received as i really don't fancy the alternative of hand notating all 2500 points. Worst case scenario if i could get the Coordinates to print with the page it would help.
As a footnote: The Z value on this project is not important but it would be useful in the future. Ideally the information i would like to record would be:
Point No. Easting(X) Northing(Y) Elevation(Z) Description
