What are you trying to accomplish? Are you wanting this for SoftList or for some other reason? The end goal can determine the easiest method.

I would like to have it added to softlist, I can get a total of sill gasket needed for a project.

The formula that comes with SoftList for caclulating Sill Gaskets looks at the floor system. If it finds a sill plate under the joists it counts up the total sill plate and lists that as the amount of sill gasket needed. So if your garage has no sill plate then there is no sill gasket counted.

The approach for listing the garage walls as having a sill gasket would be determined by a number of factors. Are your garage walls different than the standard walls and if so how are they different? Do you place a sill gasket under all walls? Under just exterior walls? Under just exterior walls directly on concrete? In other words, I would need to know exactly what you want and what your current setup entails. There are dozens of different ways to do it depending on your configuration and your requirements. The more information the better. Otherwise it is sort of like asking "How do I use SoftList and please include each and every possible option so I can choose what seems easiest to me."
