Is there a way to edit the room finish schedule so the ceiling height category shows the "height offset from the level" number (the actual height of the ceiling above the finish floor in the model), instead of the "limit offset" number that appears to have nothing to do with the actual height of the ceiling in the model? Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!!!

Unfortunately, Revit for some reason does not allow the ceiling height to be added to a room schedule, despite all the information being there.  (If you made a ceiling schedule, you could add the height offset from level to the schedule).  In any event, luckily the workaround is not that difficult. 

 

1.  Go to "Settings", "Area and Volume Calculations..." and make sure that "Areas and Volumes" is selected.  Say OK.

2.  In your room schedule, add the Volume and Area fields to your schedule, then.....

3.  Select the "Calculated Value" button, change the Name to "Ceiling Height", change the Type to "Length", then in the Formula box, type "Volume/Area" (w/o quotation marks).

4.  Assuming your model is accurate, you should now have the ceiling heights in your schedule.

Also assuming that your ceiling is flat....
We actually ended up removing all ceiling information from our room schedules and just use tags now. Not the old company standard, but its smart and works better.

Absolutely correct.  Flat AND level.  I was thinking about that when I was replying, but forgot to type it.  Thanks for catching me, NKramer.
