Is it possible to add "Project Information" into a schedule?

Does not list these parameters in the available fields for the schedule.  I have also added the parameter from the fields dialog and will come in but not populate from the info in the "Project Information".

Why would you schedule this?   There is only one project per project.   All of this information can be included in a sheet family.

The client wants this information scheduled on every piece of equipment on a project (thousands of pieces).  Yes it is redunant but trying to satisfy the clients wants/needs with switching from AutoCAD to REVIT. So if I include as sheet family is there a way to pull that info for a equipment schedule on each piece of equipment (formula/code)?

With the parameter within the sheet family if I have multiple sheets types do I have to enter the info on each sheet? This is why I was looking at the"Project Information" so its only entered once.

I have attached a sample excel of what their schedule looks like.

Grayed out columns are static for each piece of equipment.

White columns are from the equipment family.

Green columns are to be multipule parameters becoming one in the schedule (do not think this is possible)

exp. (90) + (901) = 90901

As project information, it is automatically shown on any sheet that calls for that information.

There is no way to show this in a schedule using project information.  You could add parameters to all elements but you would have to supply the data in each element.   Not what you are asking for.

 

You can always export the Revit schedule to excel where this data can be added.

 

You are correct - you can not 'concat' like the "(90) + (901) = 90901"

Thank you for your time WWhub. That is what we where figuring just needed more brain powerSmile. When exporting REVIT into excel is this all 3rd party programs? If so are there any you recomend? Always somthing new to learn with REVIT.

You asked "...When exporting REVIT into excel is this all 3rd party programs?"   Not sure what you mean.   From a Revit schedule, just goto the Revit R dropdown and pick export / scroll down to reports (schedules) and export to a deliminated txt file which you can then open directly in excel.  If you set up a combination file in Excel, this file can be added with your preset columns of project data.

Just to clarify my previous post.

With the schedules it is exported as a .txt file then opened into Excel.

But what about the Project Information, Can this be exported into a .txt or Excel file?

Again - WHY?  

You are talking about such little data.... I can copy paste or even type it faster than you could export - if you could.

You filled this out manually before -....

 

Do you undersatnd how to import excel files into another excel file?   A master that has your project information data and then you individual component data is imported into it.   One master file used for all the other files.   Imput one time only.

I understand what you are saying and I agree with the "Why". But its trying to please the "Client" on there wants and needs.  But I believe they will have to change that. If/When we find a solution to this I will replay
