Creating Generic Text Tables in Revit from Excel


I came across a method where you can create a “Generic Text Table” in Revit using the Title field of any schedule. This works great for us as most of our schedules are plain text that don’t connect to a component or a parameter. Now we have tons of schedules that need to be created this way but we already have them all in excel. So my question is, can Dynamo help in any way to get the data into Revit generic text schedules?

Sure. You’ll probably have to use the API, I’m not aware of any packages that specifically write to schedule title fields, but it’s certainly doable.

Try doing some research on the schedule API to see what you can find. Here’s something to get you started:
