Need a report (XSL) that combines Horizontal, Vertical, and cant information

Need a report (xsl) that combines Horizontal, Vertical, and cant information in it.

Currently when the cant report (XML) is generated it also included horizontal geometry info (XSL).

Similarly, when the horizontal report (XML) is generated it contains the vertical info (XSL) and visa versa.

However, a report which shows all three i.e. Horizontal, Vertical, and Cant info is missing.

    I fully agree with this need.

    The track alignment is a whole, and has all three components - horizontal, vertical and cant.

    This inherited from BRT separation should be removed and a way to report all three components of the track alignment should be by default provided.

    Bentley should be focused on reducing the user work and the potential risk of user error.

    XSLT is one thing, but for the matter of XML, this workflow is clunky but will probably work for you once you have a solid XSLT.

    1. Run geometry report. Save as XML.

    2. Run superelevation report. Save as different XML.

    3. Open both XMLs as text files. Delete the last line of XML 1. Starting at line 2 of XML 2, copy the remainder and paste to the bottom of XML 1.

    4. In the report browser, do File > Open and select XML 1.

    One thing you'll have to overcome is the differential in values provided by @internalStation.
