  1. @Pat Stanford Thanks Pat. I don't think kidding it is an option. Its a universal record for a lot of symbols as well as upcoming symbols. So trying to attach and link to a hidden record sounds complicated. I hope it finds consideration as a feature in future versions.
  2. Is there a way to lock a record so a user can't alter the record values in a symbol? In a perfect world I'd like to lock individual lines in a record, but locking the entire record would work as well.
  3. I have a universal record format that I have attached to my symbols. Some of the values, e.g. Weight, I want to lock so it only can be changed when unlocked (maybe even with a simple passcode). When values, like weight, gets used to calculate total weights, an accidental change of the weight value in the record can have dangerous consequences in the worksheet thereafter.
  4. @Pat Stanford I made sure all the weights in the record are set as numbers.
  5. @michaelk Creating a record with hundreds of symbol weights seems a lot of typing. I also don't know if that would help, as soon a symbol name changes. Regarding your IF/THEN suggestion, where in the report would I add this formula, since I can't even reference a cell like G2.3 for instance.
  6. @djobbins If you go to https://www.thecrosbygroup.com and create a login (just a username and password, they never send bothersome emails) you will get access to Crosbys CAD database. that's where I pulled all my shackle and rigging bits from.
  7. Hi, My symbols have a record data attached. Specifically the weight. How can I get the weight information into one column? And further more, how can the Weight data out of a record be multiplied by the count? After all that, how can I add the TOTAL WEIGHT to one final number? VWX Reports.vwx
