PipeTagger™ CONNECT Edition is an AddIn or App that adds functionality to Bentley Systems MicroStation® CONNECT. It's a tool for architects, engineers, planners and technicians.
PipeTagger delegates the manufacture of its reports and tables to FlexiTable. Alternatively, MicroStation provides an Item Types reporting tool. From the reporting tool, you can create a table for placement as a DGN graphic element.
PipeTagger delegates the harvesting of Area Feature instance data to FlexiTable™ CONNECT Edition.
FlexiTable provides a familiar worksheet presentation. It permits sorting and filtering of data. It provide aggregated information, including a count of harvested data and the sum of areas and perimeters.

You can locate the DGN element corresponding to the selected row. MicroStation zooms to that element in the nominated view.
MicroStation provides an Item Types reporting tool that you can use with your PipeTagger data. From MicroStation's reporting tool, you can create a table for placement as a DGN graphic element.
Currently (as of MicroStation CONNECT Update 13), MicroStation does not offer aggregates in reports.
