Need Help in Pipe Fitting Modification

Hi, I'm a beginer to lookup tables.. here I'm trying to create a custom pipe fitting that matches to the organisation standard.. i believe that i have linked the lookup tables properly to the pipe fitting.. I tested the parameters of the fitting and it changes properly in the family environment. so then i loaded the family in to the projet to test it with pipes. when i place the fitting on a pipe, the former one automatically asdjust itself to match the pipe size.. untill now there are No issues:smileywink: But when i try to change the pipe size along with the fitting in th eoptions bar (by tab selecting it), only the pipe size changes and the fitting doesn't change. it forms a erducer at the end..


i have attached the files for reference.. Please guide where does the mistake happen.

  Delete the formula for Nominal Radius (default)  parameter

  Write the formula   Nominal Radius * 2     for the  Nominal Diameter (default) parameter


  As the fitting connection uses Radius it works when you change pipe and fitting diameter same time. 

  Hope helps.
