I want to create a schedule that will allow me to get a total length on all counter top I use in a project. I have created a shared parameter called Length of Counter Top, as a instance parameter and I can dictate the length of counter, but I can’t use count in the formula as I get an error message.

 

Any ideas on how to do this.

I dont know if this will help you but in the Schedule properties, under Formatting there is a box you should click.

 See the attached for a screenshot.  Hope that helps.

No that's not it. Check out the attached and you'll see what I'm trying to do.

Ok, I know very little about schedules at this point, but quite a bit about programming.  I see that the length of the counter top appears to be a "Count"?  And the Type is set to "Length".  My programming background would tell me that "Count" is an integer, and "Length" is a real number (with decimals).  You usually can't mix the two.

 Just a hunch...

Math was never a strong point for me...........but Length of Counter Top is a Length (a shared parameter I created that simply tells me the lenght of the counter top). And Type in the last case was Lenght, but I figured lenght by a number (count in this case) would give me another number, hopefully the resultant of the two. So I change the type to integer and see the attached for the results. Mind you its the same error message.......Thanks......

Dang.  I had a good detailed response, clicked the wrong button and lost it.  So here is a quicker version.

It looks like the formulas are ROW SPECIFIC, but "Count" would be dependent on the number of table entries of instances (right?).  Let's say you were able to get a "running total" going for the "Count" field, you would end up with a "running countertop length" in the Total Length of Counter Top field.

At that point, you might still have a problem depending on how the Revit program is written.  The Count field would have to be calculated BEFORE the Total Length of Counter Top Field, or you would get an error, OR unpredicable results.

So, where does the "Count" value come from?

 

As an asside, if forumlas can only be written for values within a row, then you won't be able to come up with a running total, since you need information from the previous row (add 1 to the count from the last row).
