Making a Database (Record Format). Vectorworks has a database concept called a record format. This concept allows us to attach information to an object. The information has to be an a structured form to be useful and that is the job of the record format, to structure the information.
You can make the record format to store any kind of information that want. The trick is to figure out what you want to report, and that will tell you want you need to record. Don’t worry too much about getting it all sorted at the beginning, you can edit the record format later to fix any mistakes, or to add any new fields you need.
