My technical question is as follows:
"If you had a typical drawing of a bridge in Revit and had an excel spreadsheet linked to that drawing with dimensions of pier breadth in an excel cell, could you change the dimension in excel and have it automatically update the Revit drawing?"
Any help would be appreciated,
Using the DB Link extension, you should be able to make changes to the database, reload the database, and that information should update the project file.
The following section of the help has more information about the DB LInk Extension:
I have a schedule in Revit that I have been exporting to excel and using pivot tables to manipulate that information. When I make a change in Revit, I would like to be able to update the excel file without having to export a new file and having to perform all of the same formatting, filtering, pivot table options, etc. Can I do this with DB? I tried to create a database and it was not clear at all. I am running on a x64 bit machine.
