Hello--I am using Revit Architecture 2009.  I was wondering if there was a way to combine Electrical Equipment & Specialty Equipment in the same schedule.  We have a client that wants to see pretty much everything in the same schedule (from soap and paper towel dispensers to medical imaging equipment).  I figured as a last resort I could save-as either the electrical equipment or the speciality equipment and change the family category to match the other (not the best solution because it's not accurite, but its a method to appease the client).  Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

You can do all your schedules separately and combine then into one on a sheet.  There is an option to not show the titles, so you can make them appear as one schedule.

That's a great suggestion...I am guessing that it would still cause a little bit of extra work because then I would have to re-tag equipment as needed so that it would remain in sequential order (if I drop in electrical equipment as EQ-01 and then I drop in a specialty piece of equipment I would want it to be EQ-02).  So does this mean that there isn't an actual way to intelligently combine schedules?  Thanks!

I don't think that you can achieve this with Revit alone.  If you're any good with Access or other Database programs then any information from the model can be displayed however you want, but the scheduling in Revit does have its limitations.
