The Hangers section of the Data File is separated by type, Rectangular and Round. Each type can have the same hanger name, but the cost and labor factors can be different so they are setup separately. Hanger connectors have their own page as well.
Hangers are broken up by their vertical, horizontal, and circumference portion where applicable. The hanger connectors page handles the upper connections. There are no limits to the number of hangers you can have setup.
