    I’ve tried to get the x and y co-ordinates of an object from the project origin using symb_pos_x and symb_pos_y

    However, it is out by tens of meters. Am I missing something or is it the wrong expression.

    It works for me please make sure the origin is in its default location
    hope this helps

    In my experience, SYMB_POS_X & SYMB_POS_Y always measure from the ‘Project’ origin regardless of where the ‘User’ origin is.
    Are you sure you are looking at the ‘Project’ origin?

    thats my point Barry (probably badly made) that if you move the origin then place the label it will not say 0,0, but the location the ‘moved’ false origin.
