Acoustic Tile Data
Acoustic Tile Data Dialog Box
Notice the purple bent arrow next to the Tile Type field. Clicking on this icon, will open an Acoustic Tile Data dialog. This dialog contains different values for a tile that must be completed in order to determine the cost of the tile you are using. Each field has a lookup database that feeds it, and can be accessed via the Lookup icon ( ). By including this feature, we allow you to add in new tile types as they are introduced by the manufacturers. However, because they may use the same product number, you may need to adjust the way the tile is represented in your database. For more information on how to do this, please refer to the Lookup Database section of Help. You will also need to select if the tiles will be oriented vertically or horizontally. Obviously if you are using square tiles, this will not make a difference, so you do not need to change this option.
