Cell Counter
In V8i MicroStation we had a tool called CellCounter.ma that gave us the ability to count cells by name in our files, and that tool is not available in Connect Edition, but we do have the ability to create reports that can include cells and their information as well as many more options. There is information on how to do this here.
