General Legal Phrasings . XML

258 Views, 5 Replies

I am using Civil 3D 2012. I am executing the reports General_Legal_Description_for_Alignments and _for_Parcels.

 

Through some research I was able to figure out where to adjust the precision. I was also able to learn that editing GeneralLegalPhrasings.XML is where I would format the wording.

 

But, the changes I make to GeneralLegalPhrasings.XML are not being reflected in the reports generated.

 

For example, Civil 3D defaults a line course to something like this: Thence N DEG MIN SEC E a distance of X.XX feet.

 

I edited all the mete type = "line" to read as follows: N DEG MIN SEC E, X.XX feet, thence

 

Here is an example of one of the lines: <Mete type="Point" connect="Line">{lineDirection}, {lineDistanceFoot} feet, thence  </Mete>

 

They all look like this, except the type and connect values change.

 

But there is no change in the output.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Where are the files located that you are editing?  The files that C3D uses are located here:

C:\Users\All Users\Autodesk\C3D 2011\enu\Data\Reports\xsl

 

The ones that the LandXML reporting tool uses are here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\LandXML Reporting 8\Support\xsl

I am using Win XP so the files are located at: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\LandXML Reporting 7\Support\xsl

 

I thought I may be editing the wrong file so I searched the entire drive for GeneralLegalPhrasings, legal, .xsl and .xml to find every location these types of files may be, and this was it.

LandXML Reporting 7 was installed with C3D2009....

 

For XP you will find C3D2012's reports here:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\C3D 2012\enu\Data\Reports\xsl

Thanks Jeff. Is there a reason these files would have been excluded in a search of my C drive?

I think system/hidden files are excluded from searches without telling Explorer to allow them. But it's been a while since I've used XP on a regular basis, so could be off on that.

 

Edit - Yep, there's on option on the search panel that you have to specifically tell it to search hidden and system files/folders.
