      Welcome aboard newbie. Craig starts of with a good question. Best to add machine type and version to most posts. I'm not sure what you mean. Do you want to change the pc-dmis name format? Not hard, just go into the edit window, highlight it and put in what you want. Be careful using numbers and symbols, it may see it as a math formula. Use underscores and letters.

      Now on to the important part. Welcome again. Be ready for a great group of people who can and will help. With a lot of good-natured joking around and ribbing. Oh, and beer. Can't forget beer.
      When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

          Welcome Dennis,
          I am not trying to beat you up, but paying attention to detail will make your life much easier. Craig and John both suggested you tell us what "version" you use, by that they mean version of the pc-dmis software. It could be 3.2063, 3.5MR1, 3.6 (Heaven forbid), 3.7MR3, 4.1, or anyone of several others, each of which is a slightly unique beast. We are glad to help when we can, but we can only go off what you give us, so in most cases the more the better. Post a portion of the code giving you trouble or upload a sketch when needed, etc. HTH

          Duh! I should practice what I preach. Anyone need some egg or crow?

              Hpefully you can get help from the 4+ guys. Jared Hess has been very good about helping with 4+ reports. Is it the feature name itself you want in the report, I assume you want it to coincide with a dimension for a particular feature or is there a comment about a feature you wish to make?

              Like I said I hope a 4head will step in.

                Paging James Mannes!

                Hey Rusty, can you help Dennis out and give me a gourmand recipe for Crow Quiche?

                My appologies Dennis.

                  If Dennis could be a little more descriptive I would be glad to offer some suggestions.
                  Dennis what exactly is it you need? I know you want the feature name in your report. Are wanting this as the name of your reported measurement? Can't be done. But if you notice the name of the feature should follow immediately after you dimension name?

                    Hey Dennis, I think I may understand what your problem is. In 4.1, if you use a feature name longer than 8 characters, the report outputs an abbreviated name with some dots at the end. No way to see it in full.

                    My solution #1: keep the feature name under 8 characters. Which doesn't work most of the time.

                    Other solution #2: in some of my reports I put in the following statements (see code marked in red):

                                [COLOR="Red"]ASSIGN/V3 = TUTORELEMENT("PLSH11B7TOEFG")
                                COMMENT/REPT,"FEATURE EVALUATED: "+V3.ID[/COLOR]
                                FCFPROF31_Q = SURFACE PROFILE OF PLSH11B7TOEFG
                                CADGRAPH=OFF  REPORTGRAPH=OFF  TEXT=OFF  MULT=10.00  OUTPUT=BOTH  UNITS=IN
                                   PRIMARY DIMENSION/PROFILE OF SURFACE,0.001,E,F,G
                    This puts the full name of the feature that is being measured right above my Dimension call. Works great.

                    Other solution #3: change the labels so that you get more space to display the feature name. I have not been able to figure out how I can create more space for just the feature name.

                    Obviously, #3 is the way you ought to do it. But that requires you to get deep into label land. Not a very hospitable region to spend your time at right now. I suggest that before you dive head first into label land, wait until you have V4.2 installed...

                      Thanks for the backup. I didn't know there was a limit to label length. I have never had need for anything longer than about 10 letters in length. Good info!!!
