When displaying information in a schedule it is possible to show the classification as a headline.
However, depending on the complexity/levels of the classification system the actual classification of the element can be too specific for grouping when perhaps level 1, or 2 would be more suitable.
As an example, we are using the CBI classification system.
Without documenting it fully here I'll use "Timber "Framing" as an example as well as sanitaryware, so you can see where they sit within the 4 levels (4 digits).
1 - General
2 - Site
3 - Structure
---38 - Timber
------382 - Timber Framing
----------3822 - Solid timber wall framing
4 - Enclosure
6 - Finish
7 - Services
---71 - Liquid Supply
------715 - Sanitaryware, tapware and accessories
8 - External
As you can image in a schedule, seeing the 4th level of the classification would be too much, where as level 1 or level 2 would be clearer.
At the moment I have an expression that returns the first character of the classification number (for the examples above that would be 3 and 7).
Then an IFS expression that marries up that 1st digit with the 8 (level 1) classification numbers above, (screenshot attached).
The problem is, to go any further would require huge expressions with IFS entries.
Can anyone suggest another method?
