Creating Smart Columns for Panel Schedule

Hey everyone,

 

What I am looking for help on is if there is a way to seperate conduit pipe lengths by particular diameters in a schedule. I would also like totals lengths for individual pipe diameter. I know clearly that this is possible through using VB coding, but don't know if there is an easier way in MEP 2010.

 

Thanks!

Hey again,

 

I can see that what you did worked through the DWGviewer/converter that I downloaded, however I am having trouble looking at the panel style/schedule in AutoCAD 2010. I assume the reason for this is that you are using a more current version of MEP. Would saving in 2010 format resolve this issue?

 

Thanks!
