(Inspection 2017) Sheet Properties Zone Parameters Exporting to Excel

Hello -

 

I am currently trying out Inspection 2017 to see if it can cut down on our labor hours spent making new FPAI/FAIR documents. The only thing left to try and automate is our "Zone" column which is used to say where the balloon/feature is to help our inspection team quicken their processes.

 

Although I can set up zones in Sheet Properties > Zone Parameters, I am unable to figure out how to pull that information about what grid section each balloon is in.

 

The exporter for Inspection 2017 uses expressions like:

 

iex:INSPECTIONXPERT/SAMPLE_SHEET/CAD/ATTRIBUTES/ATTRIBUTE[@selected='True']/@prefix

iex:INSPECTIONXPERT/SAMPLE_SHEET/CAD/ATTRIBUTES/ATTRIBUTE[@selected='True']/@value

 

So I tried doing:

iex:INSPECTIONXPERT/SAMPLE_SHEET/CAD/ATTRIBUTES/ATTRIBUTE[@selected='True']/@zone

 

It may not come as a surprise that this did not work. But there *has* to be a way to pull that information from a drawing using "code", no? Why would that feature even be in SW if you are not able to pull that information?

 

Thank you for your time,

 

Ian
