I hope this makes sense...

I am designing an office building in Revit 2008.  I want each office door to be the same type, but in different frames.  For example, the wall the office shares with the corridor will have the door within a hollow metal frame with multiple pane sidelights (one unit).  I want the frame to extend the length of the wall with the glazing equally spaced.  Because the offices are not all the same size, each frame will have different sized glazing, therefore a differnt frame type all together.  Is it possibe to seperate the door from the frame so that in the door schedule I can have one type of door in multiple frame types?  Right now, I have the doors named by type (ie. 1, 2, 3) so that in the TYPE field of the door schedule they will show up as 1, 2, 3, etc.  Doing this however, limits that door's frame to one type.  I can manually change it in the schedule, but it won't show correctly in the evelations.  What good is Revit if not everything is linked?

You are digging a hole for yourself.  I suggest you use different families for single doors vs doors with sidelites etc and design them accordingly.  Use shared attributes in the door family to pick up your door and frame types ... etc.

If I do that, won't I end up with 30 different door types just based on the differences of the frames?  That's what I'm trying to avoid.

You are thinking wrong - think about how it is built and don't let the terminology confuse you.  When I talk about type, I mean REVIT family type.  In your schedule, both doors can be the same  "Schedule Type" and different "Schedule Frame Type" but the family types have to be different because they model differently.
