Reports: Quantities for Devices and Adapters

Recommended Posts

I never really dug into reports before. I am looking for the right way of getting a quantity of of devices and adapters I have in my schematic.


I can't seem to figure out what report I should be using.


It looks like the Parts report makes most sense, however I see a worksheet row for every device or adapter on the drawing.


Which report should I be using?

Hello @CharlesD,


You can use the worksheet Count function in a non database cell with criteria to get the count of objects matching a criteria. The formula below will give you the count of all devices and adapters in the current document. You can edit the criteria to add more details in it:


=COUNT((PON='Device') OR (PON='CC Adaptor'))


Let me know if this helps.


Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov

Many thanks for these tips, I've been out of the VW Worksheet game for the better part of a decade! It does indeed work well.


I wonder if it would possible to add this type of workflow to the manual or video training somewhere? I think it'd be helpful for others!
