Typically, to get a Quantity Worksheet started, you can select a template from UDA with all of the cost codes included and "Export the template to eTakeoff". Next, open a Quantity Worksheet in eTakeoff. Right click on the Project Folder and select Construction Suite / Import Template.
NOTE: UDA supports only 3 levels of hierarchy.
Modify the properties of the items of the QW - Assign each item a trace and extension to tailor your database.
Export project data to UDA - To be able to export your project data to UDA, you'll need to open the Quantity Worksheet of the project. Right click on the Project Folder, select "Construction Suite / Save Project as Template". This will download all data to an Excel spreadsheet in the UDA format.
Next, open UDA and import the spreadsheet into UDA.
