REVIT DB LINK TO MS ACCESS & MS EXCEL

Hi,

 

  I have a good idea of what Im trying to do, but I'm not sure if I'm going about it the right way. I recently downloaded the Revit DB Link Add-in. I would like to export all schedule data into Access to be able to work with my estimating team. From my esimating team, I have a MS Excel spreadsheet with constantly updated prices/costs. I want to be able to link the costs/pricing to my Revit Schedule's cost column. I have no problem exporting my MS Access tables to Access from revit. I have no problem linking or importing an excel sheet into Access... I am LOST when it comes to linking the pricing form the excel sheet to the pricing in the Revit data... This is probably more of a MS Access question, but any help as to HOW i should do this, or any other ideas of how to even go about this process would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you

As you said, it has more to do with having good skills in Access than with having good skills in Revit. If it helps, here there are 2 links to Revitforum.org, of two posts that I have read in the past from people who have shared with others their progress in this connection Revit - Access through DB Link:
