Hi All, 

 

We are using worksheets to generate a schedule of areas from information associated with Space Objects. Several of the upper floors within the building are exact duplicates of lower floors so for the purposes of efficency we have used design layer viewports on the design layer associated with a particular floor that is an exact duplicate of a lower floor.

 

However, this is causing an issue when generating schedules. For example, Floor 3 is an exact duplicate of Floor 1, therefore on Design Layer 3, I have created a design layer viewport which shows design layer 1. I would like to generate a worksheet which shows information associated with Space Objects on design layer 3. Of course all these spaces are contained within a viewport, so when I choose “set criteria” on the database header row, I have checked the dialog box to include components within both referenced and unreferenced design layer viewports. However even with these boxes checked, the objects meeting my set criteria do not include anything within the design layer viewport. 

 

I have even stripped back all the criteria parameters to only list objects “whose layer is layer 3”, and kept the "include components within both referenced and unreferenced design layer viewports” dialog boxes checked and the returned list still only contains 1 object (i.e the viewport itself).

 

Is there a way to resolve this issue?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

I've done a test file and this should work. See attached image.

Without seeing your file I'm guessing one of your criteria parameters is tripping you up. If you posted your file I could have a look.
