I am trying to create a report showing the assembly member/number with the respective parts/fittings. When I select a construction group list, run the report, the assembly shows the quantity correct but the parts listed only lists for only one assembly/group. Please refer to the screenshot below, GR17, we have 2 of this, but the fittings/parts listed is only for one assembly/group. How do we make those parts'quantity be listed as a total for the total number of assembly/groups.
This may help. When we were in ProSteel-ACAD, if we edit the partlist DataLine like this
we were able to get the result as shown in the previous screenshot I've provided.
But now, this does not work in ProSteel+Microstation.
Probably something was changed with the Group.Mul filed/variable.
Our colleague provided a Gouplist with Header.
It has a changed Group header with a Group sum.
Please give a feedback if it works for you.

This only worked when 2 or more assemblies of the same mark selected. But when we have different assemblies with multiple quantity, only the assembly quantity is correct but the parts quantity is incorrect. Like in the example below, for assembly 22, the parts quantity should only be 4 & 2 instead of 8 & 4 respectively.
Also, can we get an answer to this : previously if we used this Str$(COUNT*GROUP.MUL,4) in ProSteel+Acad it worked, but now it doesn't in ProSteel+Microstation. What has happened to that Group.Mul variable?
Don't worry about this issue anymore, I've got it to work as we require.
But please note that the BEN_Groups_modified_V.LST is not correct. per above.
Sorry, my bad, for the moment I thought we got it. But after several tests, noticed the list is giving out total number of parts within the entire model instead of just a total for the respective assemblies/groups.
Creating a SumVariable with properties Partlist.Count does not work.
Using the TOTALNUM variable does not work.
Before, Str$(COUNT*GROUP.MUL,4) worked.
Question. If the GROUP.MUL no longer works, what would be the replacement for this variable?
