In Microstation connect update 8 is it possible to output a table that shows how many instances of a cell have been placed in that drawing, e:g. a hotel floor populated with cells of beds, tables, chairs etc, I can get a report that gives me a table with a separate line for each cell used but cannot see a means of giving a total instead that I can reference into the drawing. I am having to revert to V8i to use the old cellcount MDL and cut and paste from a text file. I just want a simple table that links to the drawing and says cell name and total. Hopefully this is possible as and any help gratefully received.

We've written a VBA project that achieves that result.
Visit the Cell Counter page to download the VBA project. You don't need to be a VBA wonk to use this: download the .mvba file and follow the download instructions!
If you are a VBA wonk, then as usual the VBA project is not protected and provides all the source code. Enjoy!
