I am having a Styled Multiline labeling problem which did not occur in Civil 3D 2011.
I am editing 2011 Civil 3D GIS cemetery maps which uses shape files for the graves. I have joined the shape file table with a ODBC connection to an access database with a one to one relationship. I styled the polygon labels to use Multilline labels using a grave ID from the native shape data table and a deceased name from the joined access database.
This year I am updating the maps and I am using Civil 3D 2013. The cemetery is split up into 19 maps to stay under the 2000 label limit. The first 12 maps needed no restyling and updated without a hitch. Several of the maps are requiring me to restyle the labels. Every label works as it should expect one.
One Feature Label is Styled to use the expression: CONCAT ( B_L_P, ' \n ' , "C1|Lot_Deceased" )
I validate the expression and it is valid.
B_L_P is a native table property,
C1|Lot_Deceased is a joined table property.
The table properties are selected off of the list in the expression builder.
I click on "OK" and this shows in the box: "CONCAT ( B_L_P, ' \n ' , "C1|Lot_Deceased" )"
The extra quote marks makes this not a valid express and the program puts "text" on the polygons.
From experimentation, I found that I can label the features with the joined table properties but not with the multiline option in Civil 3D 2013. I have attached screen shots before and after clicking ok.
Any ideas as to what has happened to the Map 3d part of Civil 3D 2013 since 2011 or is there a work around to get a multiline label on a polygon feature with a joined table?
