This is soo CLOSE...

I need to work out the lengths... they need to post in feet and inches

i.e.  120 = 10'-0"

Quickest way and if just wanting to show in schedule.

---Select schedule
---Edit Style
---Select Length Column
---Modify
---Change Data Format

Next step is to get Jeff_M away from Civil and into MEP so we would have someone to teach us VB and how to use MEP .NET API

Now that is humorous and flattering :-) Although in my brief perusal of MEP (20 minutes or so) I'm seeing things I wish we had IN C3D. I'm leaving on a 2+ week vacation Sunday, perhaps I'll find some time to play around in the MEP world.

The point is to only have 3 columns
and the proper format for the length in the Description is feet and inches

i.e. 120 = 10'-0"

I have the extra columns because i'm trying to understand how it works, but I don't want those.

Need to get it into the description correctly.  I hope this is still possible.

Seriously.. the more people in the MEP forum  the better...  feel like I'm swimming with weights...

Unit Feet and inches does NOT seem to work either.. it seems to round to the nearest foot and does not include the marks ( ' ) or ( " )

I even tried to break out the feet inches and 1/16ths to seperate DataSetDefinitions from the [length] and then concatenate them in a DataSetDefinition [PIPELEN] 

I did have to use Chr(34) Chr(39) and Chr(47)  and it worked as a stand alone.. but once I introduced [PIPELEN] as a separate column... pthh... it went bust

So never got it to concatinate in the first place...

I'm bushed... calling it a night...
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20790817/testing06.dwg    is the polished ver of 5

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20790817/testing07.dwg    is my foolish attempt at using Chr()

take a look... or skip if you have a better idea and post that....
