This is my first post, so I am hoping to get some good feedback and be an active part of the dynamo community. I am working on a project that requires us to use different specification numbers for Keynoting than what is typically our standard. This means that we will need to change all of the detail components that we are keynoting to have the new numbers. This seems like a great exercise for Dynamo, so I’ll share my progress and hope you guys can help me through the rest.
I tested the concept by grabbing all the keynote tags in the project, getting the “Key Value” parameter, and using the String.Replace node to replace the number. I then used the Element.SetParameterByName node to write the new number back to the project. See image 01.

Next, I would like to use excel to create two lists side-by-side. (old spec numbers and new spec numbers) I then want to use those lists to search for a string, and if found, replace that string with the other list. I just can’t seem to map the function correctly. See image 02.

Any ideas? Thank so much for the help.
