Is there no ID Label Tool anymore? I can't find it in the menu and there is no reference to it in the VW2019 Help documentation. 

Hello @Sky,


The ID Label Tool has been moved as legacy tool from VW2019. The new Data Tag tool has taken its place in the Dims/Notes tool set. You could anyway still use the ID Label, if you add it to your workspace from Tools->Workspaces->Edit Current Workspace...

I just need the database header text to get this information in a worksheet. 

To get the Mark text, I put in =MARK. But when I put in =DESCRIPTION, I do not get the Description text.

Hello Sky,


You could create the preformatted worksheet report "Wall Style Report" from Tools->Reports->Create Report... and see how this information is extracted there.

I used the wall style report, but it  had this: =IF(GETIFCPROPERTY('IfcWallStandardCase.Description')<>'', GETIFCPROPERTY('IfcWallStandardCase.Description'), GETIFCPROPERTY('IfcCurtainWall.Description'))

which generated a description that was different than the on in that box. I actually have no idea where that description is coming from.


Anyway, I finally figured it out. It is =WALLSTYLENAME. I can't believe how difficult this was!
