Socket report by device


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to create a report that will list all devices, and what is connected to each socket of that Device?  


I know I can do a Circuit report sorted by Source Device, but I would like a way to be able to get over information from the Device that is not included in the Circuit Record.


Or maybe a way to map information from source devices into user fields in Circuit record

Looking to create a report that would show each device, listing each socket in the device(connected or not), and if there is a connection, information from the circuit that is connected to the socket.


Below is an illustration of report columns.


Device.name | Device.model | socket.name | socket.signal | circuit.number | circuit.cable | circuit.cable length


Does that make sense?


What I am trying to do is create a report that will allow me to quickly see what is connected to each device, where ports may be available, and create panel labels listing what is connected to each socket.

What we are asking for here is to link up data from more than one table.  In SQL this is called a JOIN. Vectorworks can't do a JOIN right now.


I agree completely that reports like these would be very useful. I will make a bid for this, but I also want it done right. So please be patient. It will happen. The more voices are heard here asking for this the better.


Thanks everyone!
