Creating reports and placing them into a drawing

Recommended Posts

So I know how to create a report to tell me how many symbols I have in a particular job, but what I would like to know is how can I generate the same thing and place it into the drawing as a report/table/schedule?

I went through a bunch of options last night and couldn't get what I was shooting for. Can anyone help with this?

In case it would help, I work in the trade show industry and we have symbols set up for all sorts of rental items and client based properties that all have their own material or inventory number. If I could get something that as a minimum, tells me how many of a particular symbol are in the drawing, it would not only help me as the person drawing up a job, but also all the project managers (myself included as one) when it comes to counting up everything for a parts list.
