Can you do while loops in revit? If not, how do you track three variables? For example If 10<20, and 20<30, then C=1. the only problem is that C can have 4 values and logically can have more t...

A while loop is not possible within Revit's... less than stellar formulaic abilities. You can use a series of nested IF/THEN/ELSE statements. For example, this formula defines the Integer Value of "ParamC" based on the values of "ParamA" and "ParamB":

 

if(and(ParamA>20, ParamB>20), 35, if(and(ParamA<20, ParamB>20), 25, if(and(ParamA<20, ParamB<20), 15, 5)))

 

This formula checks the conditions and returns the results as listed below:

 

          IF AND...             THEN…
"ParamA" "ParamB"    "ParamC"=
   >20           >20                35
   <20           >20                25
   <20           <20                15
None of the above              5

 

Hope that helps!
