  1. HI all So I have a sparse worksheet (most cells are empty), and all I want to do is count the filled cells in the columns i.e. I just want a cell at each column base that says 7, 9, 3, 15 etc. As in the mockup image encl. I'm on Windows 2012 if it matters. Active cell contents are calculations from other cells, and sometimes manually entered numbers, and in case it matters the function in a cell looks like this. But Ideally I'd also like to be able to count plain text-filled cells later on. =(INT((K$7*$D$5*$A$30)/5)*5)+5
  2. I have a reeeeeeally long worksheet generated from a load of data in my drawing. I want to display the whole thing on a sheet, but because there is so much information it doesn't fit on the page, and as such I want to split the worksheet (probably a couple of times, and ideally with the headers repeating!) so that I can fit all the info on one page neatly. I also want to still be able to recalculate the worksheet. Is this possible?
  3. Hello, Is there any chance to report in worksheet database length of structural member. Simple column type member or straight horizontal member.... There is for structural m. property: 'lenght'... when added to worksheet it changes to: ='StructuralMember'.'CenterPointLength'...but doesnt report lenght value. I know we dont have lenght field in OIP for structural member ... but one would expect that such a basic property of member can be easily available and reportable. Or am I am missing something obvious? would welcome if there is at least some math calculation alternative to be able report lenght value in worksheet or data tag as well. Since introduction of material resource we abandoned framing member but we feel that this tool is not really fully developed... Thanks for any suggestions.

    This Marionette Script creates multiple space objects from worksheet data. A very nice and time saving Marionette script to automate a routine peace of work. Please consider, that the the script takes the area column and calculate the square with that. If you have a language settings with comma instead of points for decimal seperator, the calculation will fail. Use points as decimal character or eliminate decimal places in your list
  5. Hi folks, I would like to be able to 1) create a worksheet (vs.CreateWS) 2) create a report (?) 3) set/edit the report criteria (?) using VectorScript or Python/Marionette For neither 2 or 3 was I able to find a corresponding VS command in the developer wiki: https://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php?title=Category:VS_Function_Reference:Worksheets&pageuntil=SetWSCellFormula VS%3ASetWSCellFormula#mw-pages Does anybody have an idea if there is a way to accomplish this? Kind regards, Antonio
  6. Is it possible to use conditional formatting on worksheets? Example 1: If a cell in a line meets a certain criteria I want the line to be highlighted blue Example 2: If a Boolean value is true, I want the text to be bold Example 3: If a record format number value exceeds a specific set amount, it is highlighted in red
  7. Hi all, So I have set up custom palettes with named colors, eg. I have a "Floor" palette with different, named epoxy colors such as "Nanten 340" etc. I use these palettes and color to visually assing the space object fill. Once I've a nice color scheme, I'd like to read the info to a worksheet directly. The problem is, I can't find a suitable function. I can find image, image fill, hatch etc. but not a function or a record for a color name in a palette. I've used this succesfully with images by grabbing a flooring carpet image from a manufacturer's website, naming it correctly and importing that into VW and then assigning the image fill to a space object. Then I can just read the info to my worksheet. However, this requires the extra step of creating an image and quite often one can do with colour codes(names) alone. I can also find a way to get the RGB values of the fills but this is not helpful really. Any ideas? Is there such a function/search criteria? Thanks
  8. Ever since Title Blocks were revamped a couple years ago, I've been unable to create a simple Drawing Schedule (list of sheets) as a worksheet that's linked to my Sheet Layers / Title Blocks. It used to be as simple as pulling record fields from the Title Blocks, but that doesn't seem to work anymore, so I'm obviously missing something. Note that I DO NOT want to use Tools < Reports < Create Sheet List, as this creates an unlinked worksheet (an idea with I completely loathe). In my workflow I constantly re-name and re-number sheets throughout a project, so I need a worksheet that is always up to date without having to manually do anything. I see that it's possible to pull some data from TBBs, as seen in the screenshot of my test below: All I really need is 'Sheet Data'.'Sheet Title' but that doesn't seem to work? For my first column I just used =L in the column header which works fine to pull the sheet layer number. Here's an image of my simple goal, which I had in VW2017: @Nikolay Zhelyazkov @Pat Stanford
  9. Hi All, Perhaps an obvious question, or may be not.. but is there an easy way to summarise and view all the objects in my drawing so that I can make sure everything is in the correct class or on the right layer. As a VW newbie I have found myself drawing objects onto the wrong active design layer or creating objects in the wrong class. Sometimes I spot it at the time, or make a note to myself to correct it later. I know. Discipline! Some examples: Walls and doors should be in walls and doors classes (and only on certain layers) Televisions should be in an AV-TVs class and on the AV-Equipment Loudspeakers should be in the AV-Loudspeakers class on the AV-Equipment layer I only expect polylines in my audio zoning layers I was wondering if there was some means of checking things over via a worksheet for example and possibly correcting them from the worksheet too, perhaps. Spotting the things that are clearly out of place? TIA Ross.
  10. I don't think it is possible, but I thought I would ask anyway. Is there a way to format text as a hyperlink within a worksheet in VW?
  11. Hello, Recently I came across this useful script (made by @Pat Stanford) and I would really like to use it as a way to replace outdated layer name in criteria for many my spreadsheet cells within one worksheet. Can this script work with multiple cells selected, or it only function with one cell at the time? And is there around maybe updated version of script to more recent software versions? Thanks. Here is a script: Var S1,S2,S3 :String; N1 ,N2,N3,N4,N5,N6,N7 :Integer; H1 :Handle; Begin S1:=StrDialog('Enter Substring to Find','Loc1'); S2:=StrDialog('Enter Substring to Replace With', 'Loc2'); H1:=GetTopVisibleWS; GetWSSelection(H1,N5,N5,N1,N2,N5,N3,N4,N5); For N5:=N1 to N3 do Begin For N6:=N2 to N4 do Begin GetWSCellFormula(H1,N5,N6,S3); N7:=Pos(S1,S3); If N7 <> 0 then Begin Delete(S3,N7,Len(S1)); Insert(S2,S3,N7); SetWSCellFormula(H1,N5,N6,N5,N6,S3); end; end; end; ClrMessage; END; Run(FindandReplaceInWorksheet);
  12. Hi, Is anybody also experiencing cells with wrap text on not to adjust and stretch (only one line of text is visible while others are cut of) to accommodate longer texts pieces even though height for row is set to 'auto fit row height'? I would normally need cell to accommodate 2-3 line of the text. I wonder if this misbehaving is caused by adjacent cells (in horizontal direction) in merged state....? See attachment (cells in orange outline). Mind you on screenshot is fixed state. Wanted to show cell structure. So far my fix is forcing cell to stretch to specific height so that all text fits in. Another issue is that even if I manage to fit text by enlarging row height (when worksheet is opened) it sometimes wont reflect that on worksheet when in not editing mode...just placed somewhere in drawing. Any idea in this issue. It is really tedious process to correct row heights when in one file i have easily 30 worksheets with same setup and each worksheet with ten rows to correct... Thank you very much
  13. Hi all, 2 questions: A: I`m wondering if it is possible to get Renderworks textures in an worksheet with an image of the texture. The idea is to create elevations with data tags which refer to a worksheet for the: material, texture, color, ... B: Is it possible to get the name of the chosen color fill in a data tag?
  14. Hello vectorworks community, I wonder how to achieve something like this: Have one symbol that its text parts are linked to one record format fields. It act as a container for storing of informations about any specific project that somebody in office was working on. Its about logging working time on daily bases...filling calendar. Informations consist of: Project ID, tasks worked on, time spent on working task, drawn by etc. Now I want to collect data through worksheet database particularly overall time spent on specific project for specific project phase. I wish I could type into one designated cell within worksheet field value (Project ID) and that way control criteria of database results. So the results show only items (symbols) where same Project ID is checked. Then whenever I need to type in different Project ID and get different results. Everything happening in one worksheet. I see that in some Preformated Reports materials quantity - take off you can type name of material directly into database header and get quantity of that material...yeah this is something closer...but i wish to have one cell apart of database where i could type in Project ID and control one database or even few databases (differ by project phase for specific project) results same time. Any idea how to achieve something like this. Is it at all possible? Thanks a lot for any input.
  15. I use object names often when I want to do a worksheet of areas, with each names object having a corresponding name in the worksheet to identify it. Is there a way that I can parse/read an object Name (e.g. D [ =AREA(N='D') ] in in D5 in image encl) and have another cell read and show/display/print that name? It sure would save a lot of double entry and avoid errors. I do not see a function enabling reading (in vw 2012) characters.
  16. Can a column in a worksheet be re-formated to display another dimension standard? USE: My file is in imperial (ft/in) I'm working on a worksheet for some LED video walls. I am pulling the module width and height fields. I'd like the worksheet to read 500mm, not 1'7 11/16" (The short answer is to finally get America on the metric system so this isn't an issue...)
  17. Anyone having difficulty to list in database worksheet materials that are part of wall or roof style components? I am able to generate list of <any> is present materia just those that are part of slab styles....? Any idea? Thanks.

  19. Any chance missing information will be added soon? https://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/VS:Working_with_Materials#MaterialProperty_values I would like call out Product Description value but cant find correct worksheet name to do that. Thanks.
  20. Sometimes worksheets will disappear from a sheet layer. There is nothing hiding them, their classes and layers are on, but they will not display. When I open the sheet, the worksheets flicker briefly, then disappear. The only (bad) solution seems to be a restart of VectorWorks. Does anyone have a better way to make them appear, and if so will it stop them from disappearing again? Restarting Vectorworks is not a fast process! iMac 27", 40 GB RAM, Mac OS 10.15.6 (and earlier). This is a continuing issue from vwx 2020.
  21. To multiply, the formula should be =SUM(cell1*cell2) but when I press enter, nothing happens How do I properly multiply two cells in a Vectorworks worksheet? To add, the formula should be =SUM(cell1,cell2), when I do that it works
  22. Is there a way to summarise items / sort items in a worksheet in which the data is imported from an excel spreadsheet, rather than created from the drawing as a database? When I'm trying this, the sort / summarise / sum items all appear to be greyed out.
  23. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone knew how to make a two way worksheet? I want to be able to Edit my record from the work sheet just like how I can edit the Worksheet from my record. Attached is an example of my file with the description field being the only field I want to be able to do this to. The text is already linked to the record I just cannot figure out how to edit the worksheet and type directly into it thank you in advance for the feedback. Best Regards, Colin Devenish Practice Help.vwx
  24. Hello all I am new to worksheets and have been following a tutorial to set one up for building takeoffs of my project. I have started with the walls and have been able to create the worksheet with no issue except when I try to summarize the walls based on wall type. When hit summarize all of the data no longer shows, so it doesn't provide a Toal wall length or area for the summarized wall type. See the attached images below Does anyone have any idea what step I am missing? Thank you
  25. Hello community, I wonder is there a way to rename multiple database row criteria (using same object style name) in same worksheet in one action? As you can see in attachment, I have a structure of wall (can be slab, roof..) with 10 components, but each component is directed to the same style name OP02. If i want to list all components for lets say different wall style with name OP03 I have to go to change it 10 times in database criteria...and thats tedious. Also I dont want to have preformatted worksheet for 10 - 20 different wall/slab/roof style in one building. So any thought or put it other way is there a better criteria approach for calling components with simpler criteria setup? Maybe script would do it? Thanks for help.
