Numbering sheets for multiple area

I have spent a week learning dynamo and created a massive script that creates views then does dependents based off the scope boxes. after that I have it create sheets and place each view on a sheet.

Now the problem I am having is the sheet numbering
Foundation = S101A, S101B, etc.
Floor Framing uses multiple levels so this is where my problem falls
Level 2 sheets should be S102A, S102B, etc.
Level 3 sheets should be S103A, S103B, etc.
only thing I could think is using sequence but then I get 102A, 103B, 104C, etc.

I cant upload my test project so I will describe it. In my test project I have 6 Levels and 6 scope boxes so the dynamo will make a mother view for all 6 levels then do 6 dependents. it then creates sheets for all the dependent views and places them So my question is how can I get the 102 to stay 102 for 6 times then change to 103 and that stays for 6 time then change to 104 etc. but while it does that I want it to add A-F to the end then start over when it starts the 103

I typically get this to work by using the name of the scope box (area) applied to the view to help fill in. It makes the logic much simpler.

This will get you started.

amount input could be based on counting your Scope Boxes and / or Levels.

I agree with @SeanP the name of the Scope Box could make things simpler.

Thank you very much that worked perfect for the number but it ended up breaking the sheet creator. now when I run it, it does all the sheet numbers perfect but the first 6 sheets are all named area a and the first of the 6 has a view then the 103 has the level 2 area b for all 6 and the view is on the first. do you know what might have happened by changing this?

Your graph is a bit messy so it is hard to tell
(also because i am currently on mobile).
I think it can be a lot cleaner / simpler.

I gave you some options how to do certain things. Couldn’t tell how to fit my suggestions in your Graph (Script) because i did not know how your Graph (Script) / workflow was set up at first.

You have to wait till tomorrow or monday before i can help you any further. Or maybe another member can help you before then.

It might be a Lacing thing, but it can be anything really. Again hard to tell as i can’t zoom in far enough on mobile :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

Thats no problem and sorry about how messy it is. I just started teaching my self dynamo a week ago so I still am learning how to clean things up. I actually figured out what happened the list chop was done on the sheet numbering so the sheet name and views didn’t line up any more. I added a list chop to both of them and that fixed it. again thank you for all the help.
