I have also been experimenting with the creation of a Light and Vent Schedule. The problem I have is having all the info listed in One schedule instead to four separate schedules that I need to slide together to appear as one schedule. First: Room Schedule- Shows room name / SQFT and required 8% for light of that room. Second: Window schedule adds all actual light SQFT for each room. Third: Room Schedule: Shows required Vent for each room. Fourth: Window Schedule- adds all actual vent for that room. Doors have to be separate schedules and could be added into the Window Schedule for possible light and egress listings. If I could get the Multi-catagory Schedule to add parameters for Rooms,Windows&Doors fields for one schedule I could make one schedule for Light/Vent/Egress. Any ideas for applying Shared Parameters to these fields for one Schedule? Or Making a Multi-catogory Schedule adding parameters for several different fields?

The amount of effort and time that it takes to setup this way seems to be a bit of waste of time for the amount of automation you get... Personally i still prefer to export the information out to excel or access and manually enter the data, as your essentially doing that with John's method anyway. The main advantage is that the schedule is updated if the model changes...

The Posting I made above does work, and does update with the changes in the model. And does not need to be exported to show correctly. Room name updates, Room area updates, and all others. This seams to be the best parametric schedule idea I have come up with yet. The problem with John Harridge idea is you have to input instance areas into the window, as "place holders" so the schedule will pull it out. This is a "no no" In order for the schedule in revit to be useful it must pull the info from a predefined unit listed in the windows, using shared parameters, when it is loaded into the project. It must also pull the Room name and Area from the Revit Room tags Tag's. The days of manual input per instance should be over by now, "ha ha". The only thing I have left to figure out, is a way to incorporate doors for Light. Also a Filter or Grouping to show the highest number of a field, for Egress per room.
