With the new release of MicroStation U17.1, it is easier to work with the enhanced reporting structure and streamline your workflows. The following minor improvements have been introduced in update 17.1 for Reports dialog.
You can create a source and its related object in the reports. For Eg. If you are working with an element associated to tags and wish to extract properties of the element such as ID or Description, you can use the “Tag is attached to Element” combination.
The “From Related Object” in the Column definition is set to No. If you enable this setting as Yes, the related object and its properties are displayed in the reports.
A detailed step by step procedure of working with this feature is shown in the video below and documented in MicroStation CONNECT Edition’s Web Help and online Help.
Report dialog allows you to select multiple properties of an element for a single report column in the output.
The Add another Property setting allows you to add one more common properties in the column definition section.
After following a couple of detailed steps, you can see the common properties in the properties field of the column definition.
