Someone has created a code analisys sheet for me in Microsoft Excel. I need to import this excel spreadsheet into Revit, for display on my code check plan. I would prefer to do a link, so that the file can be updated from Excel in the future. This is an easy process for AutoCAD. Does anyone know how to do it in Revit? So many questions, so little time.

This issue has been covered many times. Revit presently will not allow you to OLE link the Excel file. I print the Excel file to a PDF then in Acrobat save it as a JPEG then paste that JPEG into Revit. The other option is to convert the Excel file to a .dwg and link the .dwg in. Dotsoft makes a program that will watch a hard drive for Excel files and convert them to .dwg files on the fly as the Excel file is changed. HTH Tom

If you have AutoCAD, link the excel file to that then link the autocad file to revit. You will still have to update the autocad then the revit files when you change the excell but at least you won't have to convert to an image file each time.

I came to this forum looking for ideas about how to import an excel file to Revit. I guess there is no direct and easy way. It is either the 'image' way or 'acad' way.

In this case I prefer acad over the image. at least I know acad better than photoshop ! I will try to use acad 2008 so it should give me a better control and -hopefully- live link to the excel file. I will try to make it work and report back to this forum.

I have just recently come across a similar problem when asked to import Material Takeoffs from exel into the Revit Project. Due to time constraints we were not concerned about auto updating the schedules once they were in the model and did not have the time to explore the benefits of an add on, therefore I went the Image route.

I have heard of people taking the schedules into paint but the lack of quality is a big deterant. I elected to PDF the schedules, once a PDF of the file was created I opened the document in adobe and resaved as an image file i.e. JPEG, PNG, Tiff.

This creates a high quality image that can easily be placed on sheets, drafting views, or legends. I prefer legends and drafting views because they allow you to control the size via scale allowing you to control text and cell size.
