Just before I finish tying my noose to the overhead rafter.... can someone help me with my problem??

I have two projects with the same client, using the same electrical equipment. I have an electrical schedule in each project, set up exactly the same as each other, i.e, Formatting/Sorting, and fields, etc. The problem is that both schedules show up differently in each projects even though they're set up the same.

I have attached examples, as you can see, Item numbers are not sorted correctly, "K" Items not grouped... etc, etc, etc. The Project 1 image shows a new piece of equipment, K3, which was imported in to the project, however it will not group with the same "K" items in the schedule.

Project 2 image is a mess, some items group, some don't....??? Can't see why? Maybe someone else has had this problem??  Would appreciate any help.

First off, if you have a schedule created in one project no need to re-create in a second project.  Schedules can be copy/pasted from project to project or inserted from file from another project.

Second, you are doing the first sort and group by 'description' which is an alpa soft and actually working the way I would expect.  If you want all the keynotes beginning with K to be grouped together you can create muliple schedules that filter to those items that begin with a certain character.

If you want to do it all in one schedule, then you need to introduce another field that can be used to sort and group on such as 'sort order' and fill it in with a number or character depending on the logic you wish to use.

You can try the Revit help menu for more information.  Really though it is best to learn databases as you would be asking the same question if this was a Microsoft Access forum and my answer would be the same.
