Exterior wall area

Is there a method short of measuring and computing the area of an exterior wall?  I know the info on openings will show the area but walls isn't the same.  Thanks for any info.

Bill, I usually just draw a shape>polygon with snap on and trace the area in question.  Then when I edit>polygon it shows me the sq footage.

Jim thanks for the reply.  I

Jim thanks for the reply.  I was hoping for a better solution but that works if need be.  Last one I had a polygon of the area needed and took the perimeter dimension for that X a constant wall height so not too much work to get it.  Wall heights normally vary though.
