As a very new Dynamo user, I’m pretty jacked about this thread! I was able to follow along with @cobipal 's video above , and created a graph that actually added parameters from an excel file.
I do have some questions though:
Shared parameters-How do I know if the parameters are being created from my shared parameters file, and if they aren’t, how do I get that to happen? (After I typed most of this post, I saw Mepdot’s image above with the red box around the Shared Parameters radio button, and I could prove out that same result, but… I tried editing the excel file to slightly change the parameter names ("-" to a “_”), and I got the same result, even though no shared parameter of that exact name existed.)
I noticed that each time I ran the graph, every parameter in the list would be duplicated. Is there a way to exclude existing project parameters from the write? Even better, if I change family categories in the excel file, can the existing proj parameters be updated? Currently, if each of the parameters in the list is associated to a different family category (in the excel file), all of the categories will be applied to all of the project parameters that are created.
Each time I run the graph, my excel spreadsheet closes. Not a deal-breaker, but is there a setting that I’m missing?
Currently running Revit 2019.2 and Dynamo 22.214.171.124.
