By accident found out I could use surfaces instead of solids. Created a cylinder surface then use area with sub option entities. The application this is used for is figuring square footage on a pressure vessel (tank) - which from that we calculate how much paint is needed for coverage. I know this is easy enough thru simple math but the figuring square footage of a vessel head surface is a pain, so popping them as surfaces is easier - again using area command but sub options add then pick entities. Thanks to all for the comments!
