Totals for cabinet width in schedule

Does anyone know a way to include a totals row for cabinet schedules that will add up the width of all base cabinets to give a total of the linear cabinets?  I'd like to be able to provide a quick and easy calculation for preliminary drawings so the client can get a tangible sense of how much cabinet space is provided.

No, Chief only includes totals for Areas (Door, Window & Room categories).

It would be nice to have a Totals row for other dimensional data.  Maybe a suggestion would be appropriate.

Thanks.  Wanted to check here in Q&A before I made a suggestion.

By the way at, this can be done now with some custom macros.  Using a schedule is even possible but requires a relatively complex system.  It’s pretty easy to add a Component to your default base cabinets and just run a quick Materials List though.  Try this (assumes you’re using X13):

 

Add an Accessory to your Default Base Cabinet, name it something like Total Base Cabinet Run,  type = width into the Quantity field and set it to Apply Formula to Source Object.  Now draw a Materials List Polyline that encompasses the entire area, set it to only report Accessories, and create a Layer Set Where only Base Cabinets are displayed.  Place your materials list polyline onto a unique layer that’s easy to toggle on and off.  Do all that in your template plan and then anytime you want to total your base cabinets simply turn the Materials List Polyline layer on, select the polyline, generate materials list, and then switch to the layer set where only base cabinets are displayed.
