This is one of those things I have always thought is possible - but haven't got round to working out how to do.
I would like to assign a value to a symbol. For example - to work out seating capacity - one sofa could seat 3 people - so can I assign a "Capacity" variable that is set within the symbol. A chair would have a capacity of 1.
I could then create a worksheet which counted the number of symbols - then a total capacity depending on how many 3 seat, 1 seat sofas etc I have.
Is that a job for a record format? I have used them a lot - but only to set a variable for each instance of a symbol (ie a table number etc)
Thanks in advance
