I want to view the attributes of each floor number returned by split. index when I export it to a webscene but i dont know how to write that rule. so that if if index is one it diplays attributes in a database relevant to a floor with index one.

In the same case. is there any waty to report a string instead of numbers only?

You can use CGA string functions to make database-like lookup functions. One of the ESRI.lib rules, Plant_Loader, has an example of this. The plant data came from an Excel spreadsheet. The data was formatted as CGA using Excel string functions. It will take you a bit of studying to understand it, but it is a useful technique. Hope this helps!

You can report strings, but there is no support for this other than Python-based export. See this thread for more explanation: Web Scene Attribute numbers
