Is it possible to create a Revit Schedule, that pulls data (totals) from other schedules?

Example: I'm creating a number of material takeoffs that have costs built in, with totals.  Could I create a "Summary Schedule" that takes the totals from each of those material takeoffs, and adds them together for specific sub totals and grand totals? (i.e. Foundation System Cost, Superstructure Cost, etc.)

I don't think this is possible, or at least not directly.  I am sure something like this would be useful for many things, but right now there is not a way to make a parameter that will pick up the data resulting from another schedule's totals or calculations. The same problem occurs with calculated values in schedules...

The closest you might get in your case is to have several schedules, each reporting on one portion of the Work.  Each schedule could be set to output a grand total.  Perhaps next you could create some shared parameters for Foundation System Cost, Superstructure Cost, etc, and then schedule those.  You could then use your original schedules output as a kind of manual back check for the values that you could then type into your new schedule with the shared parameters...I know it isn't as automatic as it seems like it should be, but it might help some...

Good luck~

Schedule totals are not calculated right: 1+1=1 [ 1 2 ]
