I am new to Dynamo, i have used prebuilt scripts and have barely scratched the surface on what can be done with it (i was pumped when i got my excel data into dynamo without help, so definitely not a “power user”). I am trying to edit two parameters on every pipe fitting. I have created an excel sheet that shows what the family name is in one column and what I want to change the product description to in another. By default the family name and product description are the same in sysque fittings, so i was thinking you can have it open the family and edit the type parameter “Product Description” within the family. I know this is a big undertaking and I’m not sure where to start. I’ve looked around online and have found a few things on it, but could use a little direction on this. The second parameter is a simple check box “allow slope adjustment” and i just need to make sure its checked. These are both easy to do but i have to do it for over 700 fittings each project and i figured it would be a good intro to Dynamo. I imagine it as "is number ##(from List 1) in project (Y/N). if yes run Element.SetParameterByName with number ## (from List 2) input as the value.
TLDR; i want to open each family, name is column b in excel, and edit the “Product Description” to whats in column a in excel
