Updating Panel Schedules

This tutorial teaches you how to update panel schedules that are already on your drawing.

Open drawing E-4.2.

Update Panel Schedules

Run the DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment Schedules->Update Distribution Equipment Schedule command.

Select the panel schedule for panel L1.

A dialog box will ask you "Recalculate loads between distribution equipment?". Press the No button.

The circuit values will update on the panel schedule but the values in the footer will not.

Run the DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment Schedules->Update Distribution Equipment Schedule command again.

Select the panel schedule for panel L1.

A dialog box will ask you "Recalculate loads between distribution equipment?". Press the Yes button.

The values in the footer will be updated.

Answering Yes to the prompt takes longer but updates the footer with the correct information.

Run the DM Electrical->Distribution Equipment Schedules->Update Distribution Equipment Schedule command again.

Select the panel schedule for panel H1.

A dialog box will ask you "Recalculate loads between distribution equipment?". Press the No button.

The circuit values and the footer values will be updated in the schedule. The footer values update because they were recalculated when panel schedule L1 was updated the second time.
