Importing Family and Type from excel to update columns


I have created a Dynamo script to export some instance parameters to excel. Also exported is “Family and Type” name.
I hoped to be able to update the “Family and type” name in excel and then update my family in Revit.

The instance values are imported ok from Dynamo to Revit but I seem not to be able to update the “Family and Type” name – the error msg is “Warning: Element.SetParameterByName operation failed. No parameter found by that name.”

Any comments are much appreciated.
