Scripting of a GDL Object Does Not Schedule as Expected

I've scripted an object for a car parking stall that uses parameters to designate the type of stall (e.g. standard, barrier free, etc.) and to which occupancy in the building its assigned to (e.g. Residential, Commercial, etc.).

 

I created a schedule for use with the object that should be able to discern the different parameters and provide sub-totals for each. 

 

This works as long as the "Merge Items" box is not ticked. If Merge Items is on, then the entire list of stalls collapses to a single item. I get the proper number of stalls, but can't 'group' them.

 

Is there something missing in my GDL script? or is this just not possible?

From memory, in Archicad 26, the Schedule needs to customize the merge settings

i think you can select each column and change the way each column will merge

try playing with the schedule first.

Thanks!. Nothing like doing a bit of RTFM. I'd have never thought to look for that.
