What service pack are you running? 


This was at least partially fixed in SP2, it will now correctly show data from the lighting device connected on each output.

However there is a related issue,

where if there multiple devices on the output, it only displays the data from the most recently connected lighting device. This is being worked on.

If you are using a report or worksheet the cable run ID of a cable connected to an input or output can be displayed using the 'Output *' where the '*' is the number of the output. It is important to note that if the cable object doesn't have a cable run ID then nothing will display in the field in a worksheet or data tag when using this crteria

Ah right you mean directly from the electrical components themselves.

No, you can only access the data of the Distributor object itself not the electrical components inside it. This is normal behavior in Vectorworks, unless the top level parametric object has been specifically engineered to allow a particular data record or parameter from other objects contained inside of it to be visible to a data tag or report.


What specific data from the input or output components do you require?
With this I can make an enhancement request to have this revealed for data tags and reports.
