Functional Attributes: Function names cannot conflict with attribute names.

Symptoms

If an attribute is selected that has a name which is identical to a functional attribute function name, the results will not be the value of the attribute for each record.

Diagnosis

Many of the 3D Style property fields in style properties allow the use of functional attributes, an attribute, or just a keyed in value for style property definitions. GeoMedia is not able to distinguish the difference between an attribute name and a functional attribute if the attribute name is the same as a supported functional attribute function name (Height, for example). 

Solution

If an attribute has the same name as a functional attribute function name, in order to use the attribute value for attribute based symbology, the attribute must be renamed so that it is not the same as any of the function attribute function names. 

 

For example, if an attribute is named "Height" for extrusion, the attribute value will not be used.  The attribute should be renamed, such as "Height_Meters" in order to use the attribute value.
