is there any way to create a schedule of rooms with the corresponding wall finishes in an automated way (not inserting the finish manually as an instanced parameter of the room but rather extracting the wall finishes from the room entity, since they are already recognized as boundaries)? THANKS

I think what you are looking for is what Revit calls a "Schedule Key" If you are familiar with databases, a schedule key is to Revit as a Look-up table is to MS Access. You can define a schedule key called room style that includes the fields you want to have "looked up" within Revit. For instance, you may have a room style schedule key that includes room name, and all the finishes. Once you have set up the schedule key, you apply the "room style" to each room and the fields you defined in the schedule key are applied to the room. Try looking up schedule key within the Revit help system for a better explanation. HTH Tom

Tom, yes this looks way better than inserting the information individually and I will investigate the topic in the help. thanks a lot for the advice. although, what I was thinking of is even more "revit oriented" and I probably did not explain it properly. since the wall finish is actually a wall property but comes in this type of schedule associated with a room, it would make sense to use the already entered information in an automated way: a room is defined by walls as boundaries so it knows wich walls are associated, the finish property of the wall has already been entered by the user. it should not be too hard for revit to put this information together and build a wall finishes schedule "by room" or a room schedule with wall finishes.
