Hello,

I am using Revit 2014.  I am creating a door schedule and some of my door elevation and frame elevation tags are showing up in the door schedule and some aren't.  I have been messing around with shared parameters, but still can't get it to work.  How do you get the frame and door elevation type to show up in the schedule?

Thank you!

Your problem is your scheule points to one parameter but your tag points to another.

 

Directly from your HELP:  "If a parameter in a family or project needs to be scheduled or tagged, that parameter must be shared and loaded in both the project (or element family) and the tag family.

Shared parameters can be used when elements in 2 different families are scheduled together. For example, if you need to create 2 different Isolated Foundation families, and need the Thickness parameter of both families scheduled in the same column, Thickness needs to be a shared parameter that is loaded in both Isolated Foundation families."

So.... Parameters can be created

  • in the family (type or instance) only shared can be scheduled and tagged,
  • in the project (type or instance) - project can be schedules - shared can be scheduled and tagged
  • in a schedule (type or instance) - project (schedule only) or shared - can be scheduled and tagged

Be careful - for shared parameters, the name is only a name.  The shared parameter has special coding that only exists in a shared parameter file.  You can export shared parameters from families or projects into your shared parameter file so they can be used elsewhere.

Thanks for the reply.  The parameter is loaded in both my project and my families, but still is not appearing correctly in the schedule (see atttached).  I have no idea how I ended up with two columns now.  If I go into the family, the Door and Frame Elevation is loaded under the Constrction parameter, but they still are in two separate columns?

No - the schedule is working correctly - You are not understanding.  I am trying to point out all the possible variables and you are not seeing two of them.  Type vs instance. 

 

Look at at door that you say schedules correctly.  Where does your parameter show up, in the instance properties section or is it in the type properties section?  Now look at your door that doesn't schedule right.  I will bet you find it is using the wrong parameter.
