    DTXR of Flan
    DN of Flan
    Description of Bolt
    Diam of Bolt
    Long. of Bolt

      we can not get Spec of Flan and flange info with bolt report.
      but we can sparate collect all flange in line to be reported and compare with bolt spec that use in the flange.

      To get :Unicode “UDA Itemcode Based on Bolt legth”,find Bolts.pdmsid file and change FileIso value in line 41 with location of isometric option file.
