Progress as of now:

How do I get the intersecting cell?

How to load datasheet values from excel to corresponding family types in Revit

Hi Arun,

Try this:

If you would like to use a number rather than strings check to see that both types are matching (Use the node Object.Type)


Using numbers rather than strings.


@A_lee thanks a lot it worked

I tried using numbers instead of string for the size


Can you explain why we cant use strings instead ? I’m unable to search using strings


It is possible to search using either a string or a number but both your data types must be the same (eg. search for a string using a string or search for an integer using an integer, etc.). List.IndexOf requires both to be the same data type to match and locate the element in the list, and will return a -1 if it cannot successfully find any. You can use Object.Type to check the data types as highlighted in the second image.
