Enable 'GetSpaceNameForOb'j to read objects within symbols


Hi all,


The worksheet function "GetSpaceNameForOBJ" is very handy for worksheet listing of the location of any objects.


However, it is not able to read the location (space name) if the object is within a symbol that sits within a space object boundary.


We ran into this while doing and apartment block with all kinds of 2D objects with records, in symbols representing repeating room types. The function lists those objects that are not in any symbol fine, but returns a blank cell if the object is within a symbol. This practically nullifies the utility of the function for worksheet listings.


Ticking "include objects in symbols" doesn't affect this phenomenon.


Would it be technically possible to enable the function to read the space name "through" a symbol? If so, please! The same goes for related functions like GetSpaceNumForObj.
