This relates to verticality checks where we may have a line defining a plumb vertical edge and we wish to compare point measurements on a structure to that line. Essentially to check how vertical the structure is.
For Trimble Access there is a style sheet called Point Comparison Report which may give you what you are after. While it won't compare points to a vertical line, it will compare point pairs based on user defined horizontal and vertical tolerances. So in a case like this you would probably specify a smallish horizontal tolerance and a larger vertical tolerance. The report displays horizontal distance, vertical distance, delta North and delta East.

Thanks James, that kind of does what the customer needs. The Measure 3D Axes function in Access is close, but you can't seem to measure a H Angle Offset when using it, so getting right onto a steel work edge isn't so precise. Cheers, Richard.
I had thought about 3D Axes also, although I thought you were more interest in reporting side of things. I have mentioned this to the TA Product Manager. I think there is already an enhancement request in for staking vertical lines, although I can't really comment on if or when it's likely to be released.
