Profile View pipenetwork data band

I have looked here but couldn't find it. If someone knows that it's been posted here, please be so kind as to point me in the right direction and I won't waste anyone's time.


I have a profile view with a data band for my pipe network. I want the stationing of my structures to show up. Works great. Until I have a structure show up on multiple profile views. The stationing may be 0+00 for one view/alignment, but needs to be 2+40 on the other one. When I used Structure Labels, you could change the reference alignment for the label, is there any way to do this with a data band?


Thank you in advance,

At this time I do not believe it is possible to overwrite [update] the data-band text as it is hard-coded from the location of the object in the profile view. I need to test this to make sure.


Could you please provide a screen-shot of the results you are getting in the data-band? Could you also provide a dumbed-down version of this drawing? Something that has the alignments, profiles, and structures/pipes live in the drawing?
