Worksheeting Records Attached to Nested Symbols

Recommended Posts

I've worked to create a symbols master which every drawing I do is workgroup referenced to in hopes of enabling the efficiency of 1 change to the master is updated in all referenced drawings when I come back to them.

I want the records of the masters to travel with any referenced updating.

In attempting to override the basic (and sometimes usable to be sure) functionality of each placed symbols' records' instance being unique, I've nested a symbol to which the record is attached within the "non-record-attached" referenced symbol.

After updating any workgroup references, any reports I've generated (with the "search in symbols" option selected upon creation) do indeed reflect any changes I've made in the remote, referenced master.

Now I want to get any worksheet's output to be more specific to a certain record's field value and can't find any criteria in the Create Reports dialogue to restrict it so.

Is there a Vectorscript command I can utilize to enable a search in symbols for a specific record's field value? I've noticed "INSYMBOL" in the "Create Report..." generated worksheet database row criteria cell value, but can't seem to get it to work when setting the database row criteria manually.

Examples would be great.
