Placing an instance of a symbol in a 'sysmbol instance count' report

Recommended Posts

Ive crated a report that counts the number of instances of certain symbols in my file.

At the moment ive got two columns 'symbol name' column A and 'instance count' column B, is it possible to get an instance of the symbol so it can be used as a key (although i wouldn't want the symbol instance in the key counted as part of the report)

Just tried it and it doesn't count the symbol in the worksheet

Function is "Image"

Criteria is (for me) Symbol > Contains > (then use wee select symbol tool and you'll see a preview)

OK that and add your equals sign and it will display the symbol image in your worksheet

Hope that helps
