How could I make a tag, generic or whatever, to be placed on an RCP, with a
label set to display the height of a ceiling from the floor?

TIA,
Jay

It's already available in a ceiling tag that comes with Revit. See "Ceiling
Tag with Height.rfa" in the Annotations folder:

......\Revit Building 8.1\Imperial Library\Annotations\Architectural

Sweetness!!! Now, can I get it to read the lack of a ceiling, and display
U.O.S. (Underside of Slab)?

Not automatically, unless you want to put in a 'dummy' ceiling in those
locations called 'U.O.S.'. Tags just report what they are stuck too,
they have no intelligence of their own (other than having the ability to
apply formulas to the data they are getting from the element they are
stuck to).

hmm...maybe a yes/no formula, or an if formula? I know there is tremendous potential with those formulae. This is just theory in my head as I can't test it out now, but would an IF formula work to somehow tell the tag to display U.O.S if there is no data to report? The question would be what does the tag stick to.
