Coordinates Not Displayed

    I am trying to observe topo points using Access 2017. I am set up on a construction site so I have my coordinate system set to "No Projection No Datum", using ground coordinates. When I am in "Measure Topo" the coordinates are displayed as "?". Can someone run me through the set up, I think I am missing something. I feel like I should be using grid coordinates but that still didn't seem to work out. I have been using software from a different manufacturer for 4 years and the set up in this instance is very simple, I have about 1 hour on access 2017 and I am confused. I rarely set up on any lines or pins, almost always using a resection and that is the case in this situation. I am not a surveyor just a guy who reads about surveying and performs construction layout.

    Hi Kenneth, 

    You can go to the Properties of job, and change the coord. sys. to Scale factor only, then set the value to 1. Under this setting, there is no difference between grid and ground.

    Hope it helps. Thank you.

    This may seem silly, but check you haven't accidently deleted your base station out of your working job.

    if so when you export your job your xyz will show ?????

    Un delete it and should be all good..

    Worked for me..

    There is a Trimble forum for Trimble Access, but it sounds like you might need training from a Trimble vendor who can get you set straight on the different types of tasks and equipment you will handle and use.
