MattG Posted September 15, 2009 Share Posted September 15, 2009 Here is what I am doing. I am working on a corporate "general session" event with banquette style seating. The client wants all 300 or so tables numbered. I have a symbol for the tables they are using and I did an array of them to start. I edited the symbol added a record that has a field called table number. Now I made a worksheet listing all the table numbers which at the beginning was none because none of them had numbers. I added a column with the x position and the y position. I went through and numbered them sorting by the x and y so they would be in the correct order and using the 2 way worksheet I was able to spend 20 minutes just punching in numbers. Now it got tricky. They cut about 6 tables and I need to renumber them. They also now want the table numbers to snake and I do not think there is a easy way to sort this. So they start with 1 at the left of the first row then go to 10 on the right now the second row right is number 11 and the left is 20. Does that make sense? I am interested in knowing if anyone has a better way of adding numbers to this or at any point in general on how to add numbers. The 20 minutes every time starts to add up.
