  • It is simple to set up.  To make it simpler still, I've published an example with step-by-step instructions.

    I downloaded the sample file and and can see where the information is coming from regarding area, etc but in my case I was told by Bentley tech. that as I want area s om m23 and ft2 then these had to be set up differently. As noted I can't remember how.

    I my file I set item types with unit number, area m2, area ft2 and car parking but the report doesn't generate this information. Why not I wonder.

    It shouldn't' be this difficult to set up floor areas in m2 and ft2.

  • Things that have ara (perhaps others as well) have an area property.  That includes MicroStation shape, complex shape and ellipse elements.

    As I have noted this isn't so easy when wanting to have areas in m2 and ft2.

    Here's your file with additions.  I've added a couple of Reports under category LA Solutions.

    1. One Report uses only DGN element types to create a table of area usage
      • No Item Type is harmed by this Report
    2. The second Report uses your Item Type definition and DGN element types
      • Report includes your Item Type properties Unit and Car Parking
      • Report includes shape element property Area
      • Area is included twice: once with default (metric) formatting and again with Imperial formatting

    And, since this thread is about totals in tables, I defined another Report that generates Count and Total Area...
