I'm sorry that we have a language barrier here, as I can not really tell what your question or problem is from your description.

It sounds like you have set up a property object to generate a fixed-size component, rather than making it proportional to the linked wall's surface area.

You may also want to look at Eric Wilk's new book "ArchiCAD From CAD to Quantity Survey" - http://www.fc-cadlink.com - although I should warn you that the English translation is quite poor, so if you can read French I would get that version.

Cheers,
Karl
