I'll try to explain this as simply as I can. Our company often gets a room list from a client with the room numbers, names, areas, etc. Correct me if i'm wrong, but I understand we can't import that directly from excel into a Revit room schedule.

However, you can create a room schedule (with all the rooms listed) in Revit without having to place actual rooms in the plan. When you decide to place rooms, it gives you a pulldown menu of the rooms you have created. I'm looking for a way for those rooms (that I've created in the schedule) to create walls, or just a room seperation line, around it when i place it in the plan. This way I can see spatial relationships while laying the rooms out. Right now, all I get is the room tag, and I've tried to change the room tag to include walls, but that doesn't work...and i'm not sure how to change the room style.

And if you know a way to set the specific room area prior to placing it in the plan, that would be a plus. Thank You!

Here's a screen shot of the schedule I created BEFORE creating the rooms. You can see I added a static parameter for the programmed SF, which i can then compare to the actual area to find problems.

The schedule that you show her should be a key schedule.  You can then use the key in conjunction with the real room schedule.  In your real room schedule you can setup a parameter that will compare you program SF with your actual SF with a formula.  You can remake your room tag to show the difference right in the tag in plan view.  As far as the autowall feature.  I don't know of any way to get Revit to do that.  If you draw the walls, and drop your new roomtag in there, then all you have to do is adjust your walls to resize your room.  I know that's not exactly the answer that you are looking for, but it is one way to do pretty much what you are asking.

you can't create automatic walls...

I have to say that I have never seen anyone working like that before Smile I know about room data sheet, but this is a real backward way of doing things, how do you design this way?

When I worked in ADT our IT department developed a command called SPACE2ADT that did exactly what you described. It took program information from and Excel spreadsheet and up loaded the room name, department name etc. and sf information to the Space Objects pull down. To start the block plan I would simply make a space, select the type from the pull down and a square would appear at the establish sf in the spreadsheet.

 I am in search of the Revit version of this.

Our challenge so far  has been finding a easy way to enter the data in the Identity Data fields, and formating a schedule that isn't 60" long

I too wish there was a way to import some data into REVIT but at this time, you can not. 

 

Regarding schedules  -  Please spend some time learning how to manipulate your schedules.  You will be amazed at the power you have in REVIT because it is truely a database.  You can have several different schedules that look at the same information but display and organize it differently.  For instance - if you are doing a hotel, perhaps you have the schedule placed on a sheet and another working schedule that filters/sorts the doors by rooms and then door families.  In this manner, you might get all of your entry doors in one line, all of your bath doors in another line - you fill in two lines of data and your done with all of your room doors even if they all have different mark numbers.
