Light fixture schedule expansion

Pardon me if I am repeating a previous post. I believe I posted this a few
weeks ago, but it disappeared.

Is there a way to alter the lighting fixture schedule to show three
different manufacturers and their catalog numbers for each fixture type?

Hi Mike -

Your question is still here and has one answer quoted below.

Also here is a former post on seeing all messages in the
newsgroups when using Outlook Express. The default is to delete
messages that you see after five days:

Are you using Outlook Express (which comes with IE)..?

If so, check the Status Bar which should indicate that message
still need to be downloaded (I cannot remember the exact message)
OE by default only downloads 300 messages at a time, starting the
most recent first. To increase this, go to Tools->Options.. then
the Read page. Change the "Get NNN messages at a time to be 1000
(1000 is the maximum allowed)

To get more messages, from the Tool menu, select "Get next NNN
headers". You can keep doing this as you are ready to read more
of the past posts.

No, you may want to look into layer overrides

What I have done to accomplish this is to make three different manufacturer and model number entries in the property set. Then I make a formula auto entry that puts "maufacturer1 [enter] manufacturer2 [enter] manufacturer3". Of course after each manufacturer I actually hit the enter key not type in enter. This works great for me though.
