Cable Summary Reporting

170 Views, 1 Replies

I have created a set of drawings with individual wires, ie. W101-2, W101-2 & W101-3. I now need to create a cable summary of the parent cables ie. W101. I am not sure how this can be done if I have not entered the parent cables numbers into the drawings. I also need to other attributes associated with the parent cables to be shown in the cable summary but not sure were this would be entered. Can someone please advise how this can be done.


Thanks in advance.

The Cable Summary report is looking for the cable marker symbols to be on the wires. Have you inserted the cable markers? Insert the parent on one wire, assign a catalog which can then assign the number of wires in the cable and the colors. Then insert a child cable marker on the rest of the wires for the cable and relate them to the parent. Once those are inserted you can run the Cable Summary report.
