Autodesk P&ID 2013 - Custom Reports, Equipment Lists, Etc

337 Views, 4 Replies

Hi, 

Im currently customising equipment lists. We want to combine certain items like Blowers & Compressors on one report, Tanks and nozzles on another report, Pumps and motors on another report etc. 
But When i try the replace table editor I have only one choice, with many options greyed out. 
For instance we cant put line numbers when I do a custom tank list. 

Is there a way to modify these defined reports/greyed out areas where we can have a choice of compiling equipment in one area, excluding some etc etc. 

Hopefully someone out there knows how to do this. 
Thanks in advance
Colin

Data Manager or Report Creator?

Hi Tomislav, 

I presume Ill have to eventually do it in two places but right now getting exported CSV files from the data manager is where Im most confused. As previously stated we want to group certain items onto certain lists. 

Blowers & Compressors
Pumps & Motors
Tanks

Also having the option of maybe adding nozzle information onto them lists also. I see from starting with a nozzle table you can have one piece of equipment and bring in that and the nozzle information but my greyed out boxes dont allow for much customisation. 

Thanks for your help

I'd move to use the Report creator.

 

Here's a link for setting one up in Plant 3D. It should be similar to PnID.

Report Creator will be your best friend here. If you haven't used it yet, you're really missing out on an awesome program!

 

Check out this pdf that is basically the user manual for Report Creator:
