Getting volume of building materials

I've read through the AC Calculation Guide, read many blog posts and several tutorials and can not figure this out.

I'm working on the database and properties and linking and I can get the volume of a wall.

But how to I get the volume of just a skin in a composite wall? I have an 8" Concrete wall (with a 'Structural Concrete' Building Material), as well as an air gap skin, a framing skin and a Gyp board skin.

I currently need just the volume of the concrete in this composite.
And while I'm at it - I'll need a total volume of concrete so I also want the schedule to read from a simple 8" concrete wall.

I just can't seem to figure it out. Can anyone direct me better than the semi-blinded bumbling I've been doing for the past couple of days?

Basics first: you did create a Component Schedule (rather than an Element schedule)?
