I am working on a townhome project that I have broken into several different building files and am linking them into a composite file to create my different sheets. The problem I'm running into is that I can't tag the doors or rooms in the composite plan and create schedules. I find it odd that I can create sections etc. in the composite file but can't tag anything, if someone knows of a way to get around this I would really appreciate it.

There is no way around this other than to schedule and tag the elements in their respective files. This has always been a limitation of linked files. Our typical method for working with linked files is to schedule each building invidually then link into a master site file where typical details and site information is kept... HTH.

We are working on a multi-family housing building that has several units that are identical. We linked in several instances of a Unit RVT file into the host file. We changed the "mark" of every door within the linked file to read as x10, x11, x12... in order to coincide with our room naming convention. I added a paramater to sort by the RVT link Name (which I changed each instance to be distinct within the host file). Once I load the linked in files and run my schedule, Revit will consider those doors with the same mark but with different rvt name field to be the same and I loose the ability to distinguish them. I've tried doing separate schedules and filtering by the rvt name field but it still runs into the same problem. As the picture shows, I've only done this to Unit 1 Lower Level and Unit 2 Lower Level and I've left some doors in Unit 2 Lower Level with distinct names to show that they are sorted when they don't have the same name. any ideas?
