Terminal list/text file from "Surf"

Hi,
It would be handy for me to have a list of how many terminals I need for a build. The terminal plan gives
me connections from both ends, so it doesn't give me a
way of establishing how many I need. We haven't finalized
terminal strips or locations yet.
The component report doesn't include terminals...
If I "Surf" on a terminal, I get a good list of how many of that type I have but I can't seem to generate a text file from that dialog box.
Is there a way to generate a test file from the Surf dialog?

I am not sure what you are asking for. If all you want is the number of each type of terminal used in a project, you should be able to get this from the BOM. Of course, this assumes that all the terminals used have catalog numbers with them. Be sure to select "Displayed in Tallied Purchase list format." This will give you just the compact purchase list.

The terminal numbers report gives me exactly what I am looking for.
