I’m a Dynamo noob, and have both a ‘general best practices’ question and a technical issue with my first DYN file.
I am attempting to use Excel as the ‘middle man’ for renumbering and renaming sheets in Revit. I have successfully exported an XLS with Dynamo, it generates 3 columns: ElementID, Sheet Number, Sheet Name
I am having difficulty getting Dynamo to Import and overwrite the Sheet Number and Sheet Name data.
Questions: Is it necessary for me to even use the Element ID to ‘match’ the correct Sheet Element ID? Or should I just hope the ‘list of sheets’ doesnt change while use only list process for the other 2 columns? What is the ‘best practice’ here? How is it that Dynamo knows that the order (and quantity) has remained the same between the export, (then data manipulation), then Import?
I’m experiencing an error with running my import script, and it does not update the Sheet Names nor Sheet Numbers in the Revit model. Could somebody tell me what settings are incorrect? (see image)
