Flooring area in schedule?

Hi,

Is there a way to create a table that I can insert in my plan that shows my flooring areas as per my rooms in interior mode? I know it shows up in the material takeoff but I want to insert a table that adds up all the hardwood and tile for the entire house. The room finish schedule does not have an area field or I would use that. However even that would not add it up. I use rooms in room mode to automatically insert my room labels and do my baseboards etc. so I do not want to add another redundant zone for my guys to manage in area mode.

 

Thanks

Damon, since you said "I know it shows up in the material takeoff" I am assuming that you use SoftList. If that is the case then you could create a custom report that only includes flooring. Then you could export the report to a comma delimited text file and then open the text file in Excel. That would create your table. Then copy the table and paste it into SoftPlan. Not exactly automatic but better than going around measuring each room and adding them all up. Other than that I can't think of any way to get a flooring area table.

Thanks Bill,

I think that idea will get me where I want to go.

It will be more work to do but will yield the most customizable results.
