In short, a MicroStation model is completed, IFC drawings are published and issued to the Contractor. Eventually, a design amendment is required (say, re-positioning of a few light posts), requiring changes in multiple IFC drawing packages across multiple disciplines (30 drawings).
Currently, the assembly of an affected drawings list is very manual - scanning through packages to see which drawings have published the outdated version of the light posts. Once populated, these are then all re-issued with updated XREF of light posts.
Can MicroStation track where a certain XREF has been published to, and therefore formulate a 'file list' of drawings that will now be outdated (following relocation of light posts)? Then re-publish these with updated XREF?
Any help would be most appreciated. Currently we are spending countless hours assembling such lists, with some instances over 100 drawings being affected!
This is the wrong place to post, this is purely printing and plotting...
I don't think there is any tool in mstn out of the box , project wise can provide a report of where an xref has been used, VBA can produce a list of where a specific xref has been used, there are a few free published vba's list xref reports that can scan a folder of dgns and report the xrefs used, you open the report in excel and format to list via filter the xref you want against the dgn names that use it...
here is one I just found

Thank you very much. We'll have a go at the ProjectWise reporting
