There is no "Slab Area", but there is "area()" which works with a slab object. Please review the worksheet in the very first 'quantify.VWX' document I posted above. (I fear we may be discussing in circles?)

Is there any way you could direct me to this post?

I can easily create a Database row and get a list of all wall styles and the related area.

Cell 1 '=WST' [sum]


This is how easy it should be.

To make it easy I should continue and

Cell 3 =('__NNA_Wall_Style_Format'.'Cost Index Code')

Cell 4 =A2*A3 and I will have an estimate of cost for all the walls.

Now I try the same for slab. I can't see any way to emulate the same set up for slabs as I can for walls.

There is no similar 'SlabArea'

'=WST' does not have a corresponding '=SST'

I am able to get a read out from this method for everything except the Cell 4 which would be the resulting cost estimate shows #value. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I am able to multiply other columns with the surface areas, it only shows the #Value! error where I am multiplying by the Cost Index
