Please attached the Family file (.rfa) so it can be investigated. Also, what version of Revit are you using?

You will need to download the associated Lookup Table associated with this Family, which should be available from the same location in which you acquired the Family. This is the cause of the error, and the name of said .csv file is "Victaulic-AGS-45 Equal & Reducing Lateral Tee No W30 & W30R.csv".

Right, but the formulas that are referencing the Lookup Table are producing the error you are seeing. If you were to remove those formulas, you won't get that error.

 

In addition to the .csv file that was already mentioned, there are also formulas and nested Families which require a .csv file as well: "Victaulic-Grooved Coupling OGS-AGS.csv".

 

Place both of these .csv files in "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\RME 2013\Lookup Tables\Pipe" and the Family should be corrected. Also, be warned that there have been many threads reporting problems with Vitaulic's Families.

The error just has to be resolved, first. As I said, you can place the .csv files into the folder following the path in my previous post (I'll attach the other .csv files here) or you can delete all of the formulas that contain "text_file_lookup(" prior to changing any info.
