after discovering zones and the space evaluation tool I wonder whether it is possible to customise the XLS output further by also reading out information from a property set attached to the space?
Scenario as follows:
The office standard is to have a property set attached to each space that defines a room number (which is the level ID plus a number, say G-01), the area and the space name.
We used to simply schedule the areas with a schedule table. That only gives us net rooms, no subtotals per department (or say per flat) and no grandtotal.
So we got as far as using zones grouping the spaces in each flat.
Now I need an area schedule XLT template that also displays the room number from the space's property set and the schedule grouped in a fashion that I get subtotals per flat (=my zones) in another column and a grandtotal.
Playing with the Space evaluation tool I seem to only ever get Room/ zone names and their areas.
Does anybody know a good tutorial expanding on this and creating XLT templates?
Thanks in advance, much appreciated.
The Autodesk University Online Classes are a great resource for all kinds of tutorials.

This is what I know so far, now I need some help on what I think is the next step: using zones for my area schedule and collecting data with the space evaluation tool and manipulating the Excel templates for that.
I basically want to end up having an area schedule with subtotals per flat and per floor and a grandtotal at the bottom.
I haven't found anything to that respect in the AU yet.
