I don't think you explained your situation well enough and no one understands what you are asking.

 

1. What Instrument Summary tool?  If this a worksheet?

2. How did you try and change the Light Info Record. What is not working?

 

Does the Light Info Record have the right information but the worksheet does not show it?

 

More detail is needed to understand the problem to be able to offer solutions.

I believe he is talking about the Instrument Summary tool that is part of the Lighting Toolkit in Spotlight

However, that is still not enough information.

Raj, are you changing the value of the "Weight" field in the Light Info Record after having placed the Lighting Device?  Lighting Devices that are placed before the change of the "Weight" field will not reflect the new value you have placed in that field if you placed in the symbol definition, nor would any symbol instance if it was placed with the symbol insertion tool.  When you change a value of a field in the symbol definition it will be ignored by every instance of that symbol that has already been placed.  Only the Lighting Devices and symbols placed after any changes you make will be use/show the new value.  It will also be the case that you will have instances of the same symbol having different weight values.  To make every Lighting Device of a given Instrument Type value have the same weight value you must select every instance of that type and then change the value of the "Weight" field in the Object Info Palette (OIP).  Both VW and AutoPlot have a tool to select all the Lighting Device instances of the same type as the currently selected one.  Having done that you will still need select the "Refresh" button at the bottom of the OIP of the Instrument Summary Instance, or just make a new one and delete the old one.  If you have done all that and still do not see the correct weight underneath the Instrument Type name in the Instrument Summary post the file here.

Another way instead of manually selecting the objects might be to use the Custom Modification menu command. This will let you choose the items and set the weight all at the same time without having to change your selection.
