I prefer to have a door type "A" with a "Count" column, that way there is one row that can apply to dozens of instances of the exact same door.  If someone needs to refer to an exact door, they can use the room number with the door type and pin it down that way.  The window schedule would be similare.  This avoids huge schedules.

Same concept with room finishes.  In schools, offices, hotels, etc. you have tons of rooms with identical finishes.  I want to have a finish "A" row and insert that tag into each room with that identical finish combinatioin.  Maybe create an empty block in the room tag family and manually fill it in.  I may back off on this because of the quantity calculators within the finish schedule but I think they can be located elsewhere.

In the properties of the schedule click the Sorting/Grouping Button and unCheckmark the box that say "Itemize every instance". This will group the alike instances of the items into a single line and allow for a Count.

Since I changed the door schedule after I placed the doors, the door tag still reads with a number.  How do I change the door tag to show the "door type" instead?

Edit your door tag family and change the label to refer to either "Type Mark" or "Type" parameter. "Type Mark" will return a type base designator and "Type" will return the Name given to each type. These will be reflected on any of the same type doors.

Thought I'd bump this thread instead of starting my own becuase part of it has helped me. I'm trying to set up a Door Schedule grouping matching doors together.

So far I have managed it but Grouping them by type now means that the Door number column (Mark) is left blank, what can I do to get this column to list the multiple door numbers?

For example for the 6x Internal Asymetric Doors, I want the door number column to list 01,05,07,09 etc

 

Curreny schedule attached

 

Many Thanks

 

Simon

The grouping is not your probelem.  If you don't have checked "itimize every instance", then if you have two doors with different values for any field, then that filed will show blank.  After all, which of the multiple data would you want to show?

 

Check the itimize every instance and you will see the problem.

WWHub, thank's for your reply. Sorry but I'm not sure I follow. Checking itemize lists every single door seperately which is fine if that is what you want. Where you have the same door used multiple times the only difference in revit is their door number(Mark)?

Is it possible to list multiple door numbers for the same door typres?

Sorry this is my first time with schedules and so don't fully understand the workings of them but also haven't managed to find anything else explaining how to go about this.

Thanks again

Simon

You can't have it both ways.  If you don't want to list every instance then don't sort by just a parameter that will mix data.  Add a second sort by the mark field.

WWHUB - Thanks for your help. Unfortuinately I am not any closer with this, If as you say I add another sort field - 'Mark' as you suggest then I go back to a table where pretty much every door is listed seperately. So currently I have the 1st sort of 'Type' which produces the list closer to what I want where similar doors are grouped together.

I guess the question is, is it possible to do what I want? the table as attached with mutliple door numbers in the door number column? 

Sorry to keep asking on this. If you know of a good guide I could alternatively look at that would be good, can't find any myself

I think you need to spend some time with Revit tutorials on scheduling.  If you want multiple door numbers in one cell of the schedule - you can't get anything like that.  If you want to see each door number then that will be one line of data per door number.

 

Remember, Revit allows multiple doors to have the same tag.  In our hotels, all guestroom entrances are door number 1.  They all schedule on the same line in our schedule.
