Hi to all,
i´m using DB Link with Revit 2012 and Access, mainly to do quantity takeoffs and model checking by now. I´m having a problem when i change the revit model and export to access again: some elements are "duplicated" in the process. I managed to isolate the issue on a floor case. I made a floor with a material and exported to access; checked with a query and everything is ok. Then i went back to revit and applied a different material (duplicated from the original) to the floor. After updating the access file through DB Link i end seeing 2 floors, one with the new material and the other with the old material, wich is not supposed to exist at all. The problem is that DB Link doesn´t delete the original material reference from the "materials quantities" and "materials" tables, so access shows "two" floors with two different materials when i run the query again.
If i delete the tables every time i update the model i solve the problem, but it seems to me that DB Link should delete the old entries from the tables.
Am i doing something wrong here? Is this the right behavior of DB Link?
Thanks in advance,
