    Suffix behind count in schedule

    Is it possible to add a suffix to the counts in a schedule.
    Right now it is like this:

    Code:
    example family
    4
    and I would like it to be like this:
    Code:
    example family
    4 st.
    And is it possible to have it on selected families only?
    How can I achieve this?

    Thanks!

    As far as I'm aware, no, and there's good reason. The column header of a table defines the data type within it, saving you from having unnecessary fluff in your schedule, and allowing your fields to be used for maths (the reason why I contest "Fire Rating" should be 30, 60, 90 or 120 - under the column heading "Fire Rating (min.)" - not "30min.", "1/2Hr" or such.

    Yeah youre right about that.
    But now I only have a number as a count.
    There is no clear indication for the reader (other than me) that that number stands for the total of that type of family.
    Do you understand me?
    Thats why in Holland we are used to the abbreviation "st" which stands for "stuks" ("stuks" means "pieces")

    Same applies... Just change the header to Aantal (st). btw: you can click inside the header field and change the text. This doesn't affect the actual parameter name.

    But it is weird and annoying that we ARE able to set and override suffixes for any other parameter, except the Count parameter..
    Another option: add a custom count parameter as a project parameter (needs to be shared), apply to all families and set to 1. This one you can add a suffix to. (I would prefer to add them to the families involved and add the value "1" to the formula field. this way you can't edit the value in the project)
