Select Family Type by GUID

I have a simple problem that I cannot seem to get around. I need to select a family type by it’s GUID’s, but it doesn’t seem to be an option in Dynamo.
I export the types, some parameters and their GUID’s to excel, fill in information in excel and bring that back in and populate the parameters with the data. I know I can us element ID’s, but it is a work-sharing enable project and it could be a few days before I get the information back in excel.
Does anyone know of a way to select family types by a GUID?
I did see that @Peter_Kompolschek had a post a while back here:

but I couldn’t see the image clearly due to the forum change (i think)
any help would be great!

Hi Neil,

This will give you clear picture :wink:

I can see clearly now the resolution has come.
Thanks @Kulkul

Error in syntax of code above in the end- cleared out try/except to catch errors for i…
import clr
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *

#import ToDSType(bool) extension method
import Revit

# Import DocumentManager and TransactionManager
clr.AddReference ("RevitServices")
import RevitServices
from RevitServices.Persistence import DocumentManager
from RevitServices.Transactions import TransactionManager

from System.Collections.Generic import *

#Import Revit API
import Autodesk
from Autodesk.Revit.DB import *

doc = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentDBDocument
uiapp = DocumentManager.Instance.CurrentUIApplication
app = uiapp.Application

#The inputs to this node will be stores as a list in the IN variable
dataEngineeringNode = IN
doc = IN[1]

#unwrap incoming info for use with API
guids = UnwrapElement(IN[0])

#use ElementIDs to select elements
elements = []
errors = []
message = None
for i in guids:

#Assign your output to the OUT variable
if len(errors)>0:
	OUT = elements,errors
	OUT = Elements

For follow up questions need to start a new thread. You could link the old thread as reference. This topic is already solved.
