  1. Thank you so much Pat, I managed to get it to work by using the header!
  2. Thank you for your reply, this is all quite new for me so I'm sorry if I might be approaching this all wrong. I have been experimenting a bit further, I wasn't aware of how to make a report without a record yet, but I found out how and I have made a simple basic report. Now I have a report which lists all the lines in a certain class and reports the length of these in the table, I also managed to make a calculation like I would in excel, however this only takes the total length in account. The most ideal situation would be if I could have a specific calculation (like the example in the image) applied to every seperate object (2.1, 2.2, etc) and if I could somehow make the outcome of such calculation appear as a number on the object (as a tag maybe?). Currently I do this manual almost weekly, I would be open to scripting it but since I have almost no experience with vectorworks scripting I'd have no clue where to start.
  3. Hello everyone, I've tried looking this up on the forums but I might be looking for the wrong searchterms. I've never worked with records and so far I feel like it can really increase my workspeed. Example: I have created a symbol to block-out bookshelves. It is a generic symbol and I use a dimension to display the length so that when i stretch the symbol, the measurement updates automatically (great so far!). I made a record listing some information and I would love to have the dimension being reported here, so I could later add for example some formulas calculating the amount of books. I haven't figured out how to get the dimension into the record, is there a way to get it done or a different approach?
