I am looking to create a report on spaces for mechanicals data as requested by the building department.

Yes it would be quicker to do that by hand ! but I am set on extracting the data instead. I was able to format the report for most information that I need but I cannot figure out how to get the glazing are and the net glazing area ratio. I can't figure out how to enter the information in the space information panel because it is calculated somehow. I would really appreciate to understand how this is calculated and how to insert the result in my database header. 

Here is what I am working with.

Thanks for the help

Hi @Christian Fekete

These values are calculated automatically, but the Spaces need to be auto-bounded to Walls and also the Walls with Windows/Doors inserted in them need to be checked as Exterior in Data pane of the Wall Settings. When both of those conditions are met, you will see the Glazing areas automatically calculated.
