How to use the same point numbers

I have several lifts of dirt. I have 50 shots on each lift, but the shots on each lift are in different locations. I have been told to have each lift on a seperate layout and each layout list each shot starting at 1. Is there a way I can show Lift 1 with point numbers 1-50 and Lift 2 with point numbers 1-50 in the same dwg?

Point numbers have to be unique but you could use a user-defined property for each point and number them accordingly. You'll of course need to edit your label styles to report that UDP and not the point number.

Also you'll need to place the 50 points per lift on a layer that can be turned off within other viewports.

There is info about UDPs in help. It's too long winded to explain here.

I didn't even think about creating an UDP field. Thanks
