When placing a Sheet Index as a Table into a design how do I reorder the columns of information in the Table
When placing a Sheet Index as a Table into the design, the Table is generated using the chosen Sheet Index Report thus in order to make changes the Report needs to be modified.
It should also be noted that the Report definition is likely to have come from a library file *.dgnlib configured by your Site Administrator and thus if the change is to effect all then they should be advised.
To establish if the Sheet Index Report is a local or library Report, open the Reports Dialog and move the cursor over the Report Definition name and the popup will display where its located
Open the Reports dialog
Expand the Report Definition to expose the define Columns
Select the Column to relocate within the Report Definition
Select the 'Move Up' or 'Move Down' to reposition Column as required
Select the Table in the design and use the 'Refresh Table from Datasource' tool to update the Table with the changes made in the Report.
NOTE: If the Table was placed in the Design without the 'Retain Association' tool setting checked you will not be able to use the 'Refresh Table from Datasource' tool in step 6 above. Instead the Table will need to be deleted and placed again.
When the Table is placed a copy of the Report definition is made in the active file making it a local definition which can then be edited as above. (Note however this is overriding the standards set by your Site Administrator)
If changes are required to the configured dgnlib Report Definitions please consult with your Site Administrator. If changes are made to the configured dgnlib Report Definitions then these will be available to be placed into designs or the local definition updated where already used.
