Plant Report

Recommended Posts

Right now I´m trying to create specific planting reports for sections of a larger landscape. I have broken the planting sections down to classes and layers but vw still does them for the whole site. I tried messing around with more specific criteria such as "layer... is... section 1(The specific design sheet of plants)"  and I still can´t get it to work. Is there a way to break up the planting plan so that I can have smaller sections of planting reports? And if there is a video that shows this or even photos that would be much appreciated.

@antonf26try drawing a box or polygon around the area and name that shape in the OIP. Make sure the plants are not tied to others outside that area or it will count the also. then set the parameter in the worksheet to look for that shape. Set the worksheet to Location> is within> NAME OF SHAPE!

What is an OIP?

The Object Info palette. It has a name field at the bottom, which you can use to name any object.

But the criteria method should also work on your worksheet. Just right-click on the row header that has a diamond on the left, and choose Edit Criteria, then choose Layer is xxx. You can click more choices to add further criteria.

Every time I change the criteria for the sheet layer 3 the table changes correctly to that criteria I set. However, all the tables on other sheet layers change to the same one that I created in layer 3. How do I get around that?

On the Resource Manager, locate the worksheet and duplicate it (as many times as you need for each different report). Then edit each and set its criteria. Then drag the relevant report on each sheet.

Do I duplicate this file? And if I do duplicate the file does that mean I´ll have 20 different tables in my resourse manager? Is it similar to the plant set up? Is there an easy way to do this?

Yes, that's the resource to duplicate. Yes, you will need a separate report for each set of criteria that you wish to use. It's easy to do - just right-click and choose Duplicate. Name the duplicate as you want, then right-click and Edit.

These could be set up and appended to one worksheet also. It really depends what you are trying to show. For instance, If you have an entire design but it is in say 3 phases and you only really need to show phase 1 for plants and pricing. You could have one worksheet showing just that phase and ignore the rest for the future. or if you need all three phases to show indpenantly this could be done in one worksheet or three. I like having different worksheets because if you use a regular naming structure for the phases or areas once the worksheets are made you can use them in the future. This way if you have 20 now and the next job only has 5 areas then use worksheets 1-5 and so on.

 

Hope this helps clarify.
