Number of defined Faceplates
I have a system that is already running, but I need to know how many faceplates are defined and used in this system.
For example I have 100 instances of MOT1 and 20 instances of VLV1, is there a way to have the answer two faceplates are defined which are MOT1 and VLV1, in the object type structure I will find all faceplates that are from different libraries and some will not be even used so searching there for faceplates type was not an option for me, but I need to know the number of used faceplates (Not number of instances but the number of the defined and used faceplates).

An object having one or more faceplates will add +1 to the TAGS count in CLS (check Licence Usage or use afwsysinfo.exe to show count).
afwsysinfo is not correct when having 800xA for Advant Master where some objects are exempted (a higher count will be shown).
Bulk Data Manager can be used to filter for aspects; maybe your best option?
The attached VBA script adds all faceplate template names to the excel sheet and counts the instances of every single template.
This script is very slow, needed about 5min for finish on my plant. If you don't know how to add this script to a Excel file to run it, just ask.
