Hi all,

I hope someone might be able to help me. I'm currently working on a project that consists of several different models. Each model requires several different packages to be issued through the duration of the project. For each of these packages, I have to make a specific Drawing schedule list to show exactly what drawings are contained in each package. I also want to keep each package of drawings in each model for future reference and I want to keep these pacakges of drawings seperate as several people work on the same model at the same time but on different packages. 

I know I could use view templates or even filters to help with this. However, the problem I am having is that the client insists that the drawing numbers within the packages are exactly the same i.e the drawing no. for the ground floor plan furniture layout package must be the same as the drawing number for the ground floor plan within floor finishes packages.

Unfortunately, revit will not allow you to have the exact same drawing number in two seperate schedules so I have had to resort to adding a slight difference like a space, dash or a dot into the drawing number. This is fine but insnt ideal epsecially when we get have 5+ packages in a model.

I wanted to ask if anyones has had this sort of problem before and if so how did they work around it. I was wondering if there was a way to add a field or peramter to the drawing number that could be hidden. So if I needed drawing A200 in two packages - would there be way to add something like "FURNITURE" A200 but control it in such a way that only A200 shows up on the Title Block but revit actually sees it as two different drawing numbers...??

This is probably a very confusing. I apologise for that. It's starting to get really annoying in work though to extent that i have to backup the model to allow for new packages to be added meaning that i don't have all the drawings sheets i want in my model.hope some one can help or even share the approach they took in a similar situation.

Thanks allot,

have you tried with shared parameter?

i think the goal you want can be achieved with shared parameter.

add a shared parameter for fake number that show up on title block, and it can be same.

and hide real number on title block... i think it will be confusing, but solve you problem..
