I need some help on how to use fomulas to generate costs from my Revit model. Is there a how to Tutorial out there that can walk me through the process. Thanks

in your schedule properties, under the FIELDS tab, there is a button labeled "Calculated Value" Click it and you will be able to create a new parameter that can calculate values based on other fields in your schedule... so for instance, you could calculate a total cost value by multiplying cost by count. Formulas here work the same as formulas in family parameters... the Revit Help file (F1) is a good source for information on formula syntax. Just search for "formulas" within the help file.

Hiroshi, Just a note if you did the formula as you say you would have an inconsistent units error (i believe). You have to have the same units through the formula so you would need to remove the dollars from the cost (unless the cost in just a numeric value and not a dollar value). Regards.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you can't use the "Count" value in a formula.  It gives a long explanation but from what I can tell it's because "Count" is not a parameter of the item.
