Computing depths of sewer line - acad- excel

Computing depths of sewer line - acad- excel


I have to make a calculation of several sewer lines depth against ground line indicating the depth in ranges (0-6 feet, 6-8, 8-10 etc.) The file is in autocad. Does anybody have an idea about how can I accomplish this through excel?

Thanks a lot,


RE: Computing depths of sewer line - acad- excel

to me, this seems like a straightforward problem. not certain what you are requesting, please elaborate.


RE: Computing depths of sewer line - acad- excel

Hi, pmover:

I just reviewed the problem with another guy; he came up with a solution. I had to compare vertical depths of sewer line and classify them in ranges (0 to 6 feet, 6 to 8 feet, 8 to 10 feet, etc) in order to pay for excavation items. However, what we did is export an ascii file for stationing, along with ground elevation and proposed sewer line elevation. He made an excel macro to compare the depth and save the difference in a variable, then sum the difference for the same range in different cells. It worked!

Thank you,
