Object Names Not exported

Recommended Posts


Does anyone know how I can get the "object name" for an object to be exported along with the all the rest of a Record Format's fields for the same object when I choose "Export Worksheet"? In the "Object Info" pallet for an object, I can name the object in the first field of a record format, but when I choose "Export Worksheet", the data in that field does not get exported to the worksheet. Is this an oversight in Vectorworks or am I missing something? HELP and THANKS!

the object name in the Object Info Palette is not part of the Record Format.

If the names need to be saved in a record, you can edit the record formats and add a field for that.

If all you need is having them listed in a worksheet, you can add a worksheet column and type "=N" (without the quotes) in the database header.

Hope it helps.
