PIOs should have numeric version of all calculated data included in the Parameter Record


All PlugIn Objects should have numeric versions of all calculated data stored in the Parameter Record so it can easily be accessed in a worksheet.


Working with a Property Line object and found that the 'Property Line'.'Area' field is defined as a text field and includes both the numeric data and the textual units (i.e. Sq. Ft.). There is not numeric only version of this field in the Parameter Record. In this case in a database row of a worksheet the worksheet formula of =Area can be used to get the data, but it would be more consistent to include a Real formatted version to minimize user confusion.


This was dealt with several versions ago for Spaces so that now Space.'11_Area' contains the static text version and Space.Area contains the Real (number) stored form. The same for at least Volume.


All PIOs should have similar access to both forms of data.
