Extracting ViewNumber Field
« on: November 14, 2022, 10:03:55 AM »
Hello -

I am hoping for assistance to solve the missing piece of my puzzle. I am placing Model Views from DWG files onto my layout sheets and utilizing Sheet Views to dynamically maintain the detail references. The fields being used are as follows:

For detail number:
Category: SheetSet
Field Names: SheetView
Property: ViewNumber

For detail sheet number:
Category: SheetSet
Field Names: CurrentSheetNumber

My goal is to generate a Bill Of Materials and point a placed detail reference to each Material which then reduces the time associated with manually updating this content.

I get stuck trying to extract these 2 field values and report them together, dynamically, in a table / data extraction. (i.e. 01/A1.01). If there is any ideas on how to accomplish this it would be much appreciated. I have only been able to accomplish this by running a separate table of detail numbers, titles, and sheets and I have not been able to solve for how to assign these fields as an attribute in a callout or a block.

I'm hoping there is a way to accomplish this without the need for a custom LISP but am open to that solution if there is no native AutoCAD method.

Thank you in advance,
