Schedule sync is a third party app that I found on the Autodesk Exchange site while searching for some way to import Excel files directly into Revit.  Does anyone have experience with this particular app that can attest to it's capability/stability?  I'd also welcome any other suggestions to accomplish this task.  
Thanks!

Looking at the similar threads and from what I remember, nobody has commented on this as of yet. 

 

My question is what are you trying to accomplish with this?  Do you want to control Revit elements using Excel or do you just want to have a view with an excel spreadsheet that doesn't really work with anything in the model?

I have started using Schedule Sync with my models- it's nicer than just exporting the schedule to excel because it gives it some formatting and looks a lot more professional. (Yes, we thought about using a Macro within Excel to take care of the formatting, but Schedule Sync looks better)

Once I have the schedule exported, I can make changes within the excel file and save them. Once that file is imported back into Revit, it changes the adjusted fields. Things like area cannot be changed- when you try you get a warning box saying this field is read-only. Area is the only parameter that I've found that happen for though, so overall its a good tool for our purposes, maybe yours as well.

There is a downside, however. Some of my schedules will not export. I get an error message saying "This ScheduleField is not a schedulable field by type(non-calculated/non-combined-parameter). All the schedules have the same fields so I don't understand why that error message is only showing up for half of the schedules. I'm currently playing around with my parameters to see if I can fix it that way. I'm sure it's something I did wrong, so maybe it won't happen for you.

Using Revit2014, dragging the rest of the company with me from AutoCAD2008. When will the whining stop?
