Wall schedules adding together wall lengths of all modules of the same type.

Hello all,

 

I have placed a number of modules into my master file and am creating Wall Schedules for each of the dwelling types. However, the schedule is showing a multiplication of the wall length by the number of that module placed.

 

For example, I have placed four 'Type E1a' modules and the length in the schedule is 4 x wall length (see screenshot below). Wall #1 "W1" length is 1,390mm however the schedule is showing 5,560mm (4 x length).

 

How do I alter the criteria/fields to show the correct length?

Have you turned off 'Merge uniform items' in the schedule settings?

Hi Barry,

 

Thanks for helping! Unfortunately when I deselect that item it shows all four instances of "W1" like the screenshot below. I'm after a list that shows walls numbered consecutively W1, W2, W3... as per my second screenshot.

OK, leave 'Merge uniform items' on.

Click on the 'Lengt' heading and hopefully there will be a button for 'More Options,.

This depends on what version of Archicad you are using.

If it is there set it as this ...
