Assign schedule to device style and not devices?

Hi,

I have a library of light fixtures each as a device style. I am trying to build a light fixture schedyle that displays all unique device styles (i.e. unique type sof lights) and associated device properties. I have the schedule assigned to devices-lighting, and it is working pretty well except that it wants to display a row for each device. In other words, there is an entry for each 2x4 LED fixture where I want just one entry covering all of that type of fixture.

 

Is there a way to associated the schedule to the style and not the device? Or a way to screen out duplicate device styles?

(I checked the properties of the duplicates and all are identical, figured that might be causing repeats...)

Figured it out. Needed to include a quantity column. I'll leave the post in case it is helpful to anyone.
