Reusable Cut Volume By Station

Within my road corridor, I have one section where the excavated material cannot be used as fill elsewhere.  I see a place where I can specify a factor for reusable volume when I compute earthwork materials.  But it looks like I can only use 1 factor for the whole corridor.  Is there a way to say from Sta XX+XX to Sta XX+XX the reusable fill factor is 0, but the rest of the project it is something else?


All I can think to do is copy the quantity report to Excel and manually change the reusable volume in that station range to 0.  But, since the report comes in as just numbers (no formulas), I then have to enter all the formulas to recalculate the volumes.  Any better ideas?

The only way I can see to do this would be to create a new material for this unusable cut.  Probably not worth it.
