ArchT Reports


ArchT provides powerful, flexible reporting capabilities for creating the reports (schedules) you need in your business. ArchT gives you the ability to create virtually any type of report - from the simple to the very complex - including dot and quantity schedules. You can design your own report or choose from one of the numerous report templates included with the product. Report templates are supplied for producing: door and window schedules, room finish schedules, area reports, personnel reports, and inventory-type reports for equipment and furniture.

The Sample Reports and Report Templates section in the ArchT Reference Guide briefly describes each report template included with ArchT. This section shows the layout of the report template along with a sample report created using the template. Review the sample reports and report templates to see what's available. Reviewing the sample reports and report templates is also a good way to learn about how report templates work.

To update a report to reflect changes in the model or report template, just run the Update Reports command.

ArchT reports can include information from:

  • AutoCAD entities,
  • AutoCAD attributes,
  • ArchT assemblies,
  • entities contained in xreferences or nested xreferences, or
  • your own user-defined records (user data).

Using ArchT's reporting features, you can:

  • Sort report information in a specific order. For example, you can sort a window schedule in alphabetical order by manufacturer.
  • Use a formula to perform a calculation and display the result in the report. For example, you can multiply the area by the thickness to calculate the volume of a polyline and display the volume in the report.
  • Generate column totals and subtotals.
  • Identify which entity or entities in the model generated specific report data simply by picking a row in the report.
  • You can generate reports as graphic entities in the model or as comma delimited files which you can work with in other applications, such as database programs and word processors.
