We need a way to link or export 15 layers and their respective measurements (length, area, unit) to an Excel spreadsheet or similar.  As we do or draw in each layer it is desirable for us to be able to calculate these "take-off" numbers in some form of table.

Does anyone know of a solution, consultant, work-around, third party plug-in or programmer that could provide this funcionablility.

We tried Reporter.exe and found that we had to cut and paste in order to get it into excel.  If we could get it to automatically link or embed those measurements into excel it would be awesome.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
