Door Schedules - Door Numbers

--Is there a way to do a door schedule by styles rather than individual door?
--To clarify: I want my door schedule to create a new door number only when one or more of the property sets, classifications, or door styles pertaining to a door are not defined by other doors in the schedule. This would facilitate giving the same door number to multiple doors that have matching schedule information, and cut down on my schedule size.
--Does anyone have info on how to do this. If I need to create custom tags, schedules, or formula properties -- I WILL DO IT. Help if you can. --THANKS

Change the door number property from auto increment to manual. You will need to manually set the number for each group of doors that is identical.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking for, but I think a hidden quantity column might do. Edit your schedule table style, check the quantity box, modify the quantity column, and check the hidden box. This way you'll get a single line in the table for every set of data that is different.

Actually the scheduling features of ADT were originally set up to work this way. Create a Property Set that applies to door styles. Create a Property called "Number" and make it auto-incrementing. Add the Property sets to the door styles in Style Manager. Create a schedule that applys to doors and includes a column for Door Styles: Number Add a quantity column for the Number. I'll post an ADT 2004 file in the Customer files under the same Subject line.

By the way, the quantity column will only quantify all the doors which have the exact same property sets. So, if you had a material property, and one pocket door that was glass and another pocket door that was wood, these would show on different lines on the schedule with different quantities. If you want a different number, create two styles, one for each material. -Danny Danny P. wrote: > Actually the scheduling features of ADT were originally set up to work > this way. > > Create a Property Set that applies to door styles. > Create a Property called "Number" and make it auto-incrementing. > Add the Property sets to the door styles in Style Manager. > Create a schedule that applys to doors and includes a column for Door > Styles: Number > Add a quantity column for the Number. > > I'll post an ADT 2004 file in the Customer files under the same Subject > line. > > Hope that helps, > Danny Polkinhorn > WATG > Honolulu > > > > CMFG wrote: > >> --Is there a way to do a door schedule by styles rather than >> individual door? >> --To clarify: I want my door schedule to create a new door number >> only when one or more of the property sets, classifications, or door >> styles pertaining to a door are not defined by other doors in the >> schedule.

Re: Door Schedules - Door Numbers

I am getting really close here. I added the quantity column and it only quantifies the doors that are different in the schedule and adds a new column for any door that different information in the schedule. However, I added a Door number property based on the door styles and this is not exactly working how I want. Since my door styles are really generalized and I only add certain things like fire-ratings & hardware per door object, the door number for the styles goes back to my actual door styles and not the individual doors. In other words, even though it displays the different door on another line, it does not change the door number to a new number.....it display the door number twice and puts it on a new line. I need a way to get the door number to change every time it adds a new line. Does this make sense?

Make your door number property part of an object-based Property Set Definition if you need to have doors of the same style assigned different numbers. You will need to manually manage the assignment of numbers. The schedule itself could be a means to check that you have assigned door numbers properly - if you get two or more lines with the same number, you either need to adjust the scheduled properties of those doors so that they are identical [if the numbers were correct] or assign the appropriate numbers [if the properties were correct].

As David and I mentioned, there's no way to automatically assign new numbers when you change a property which adds a line to the schedule. That was what I was describing by creating a new style when any property is different, such as material. This will automatically create a new number, but it's not as intuitive as what you want.

I am conviced there is a way to get the doors to automatically assign themselves. There must be a custom formula I can put into a Property set. Help if you can and thans to everyone for the help so far.

Is there a way to filter through the doors that the table has in its selection. I am convinced that I can make a Formula Property Set that filters through the doors in the table and tell it to compare matching properties and if they match, then put in the same line, but if they don't then add a new line and door number. I just need some insight from a CAD wizard.
