Schedule Key: Can I show drop-down menu in multiple schedule columns?

I'm trying to make a room finish schedule that pulls info from Schedule Keys for each column. I have a Schedule Key for Wall Base, Flooring, Ceiling, and Walls. In my room finish schedule, I'd like to further split up the Walls column into N, E, S, & W, but with each of those sub-columns pulling info from the same Schedule Key for Walls.


In other words, can multiple Schedule columns refer to the same Schedule Key, or do I always have to fill them in manually?

Sure. Add New Parameters named "N", "S", "E", "W" to Key Schedule.

Thanks for responding! If I'm understanding you correctly, that just adds more info to the wall schedule key. I am using schedule keys to create a material & finish legend on one sheet (e.g. CPT1 > Carpet Tile > Interface > Silver Linings > SKU 1000223). On another sheet I have a room finish schedule, in which each field pulls info from the aforementioned schedule key via a drop-down menu (e.g. Room 101 > Open Office > Flooring: CPT1).


Now, I want my (4) columns for North, East, South, & West walls to all pull info from the same schedule key ("Wall Finishes"), so that (3) walls could be PNT1 and one could be ACP1 - all which have been defined in the schedule key.

No you can't. You have to create 3 more key schedules and replicate the content from the original one.

The easiest way to duplicate a key schedule with the content intact is copy paste it to another project, rename the key and the parameters, then copy paste back to your project.

Shoot, that's the conclusion I was coming to as well. Thanks for your response!
