"Area" macro for use with Polyline Label?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to convert the rooms into polylines and show total area in rounded sq ft. I have combined the living/dining/kitchen/hall which all receive hardwood. When I assign the Object Specific "Area" macro to the label it gives me area in decimal feet with 6 or 7 decimal places. I would like to round this to ZERO but haven't had luck. I can't use the "Room Area" macro because they're no longer rooms, the macro is not recognized. Any ideas? Thanks. See attached.

Thanks. I know, but I only have three types of flooring in the entire house; hardwood, tile, and carpet. They can be different colors or styles, that's up to the homeowner, but the type won't change. I also like the graphical look of the floor plan with just shapes of areas that share flooring types. The schedule is tedious and doesn't give totals for like rooms, you would have to add all the hardwood floors together for example.

Sometimes a forum search ...

 

 

 

Haha, funny thing is I did do a forum search and didn't come up with that hit. I also tried writing a macro before posting the thread but was unsuccessful.

 

Anyway, that worked, thanks Eric!
