    Without seeing your family I would sugest the following.

    Make a parameter called 'open' (yes/no)
    Make a parameter called 'open_dim'
    In that last paarameter put a formula IF(open,900,0) This would make the dim 900 if open is ticked and 0 if not

    Add ref planes and put all the dimensions and parameter to them and link the door to that ref plane.

    names can be different of course.
    Did not try it, but this is from the top of my head.

    This is what I would do (very quick and dirty)

    One of the doors would be fixed I asume, so fix that (the one on the right in this case)
    the other would be movable, so make a ref plane with a parameter (your dw) and lock the moving door to that.

    Now you can move the moving door with the dw parameter.

    I did remove a formula from the dw parameter and changed the width sash_01 to a type parameter

    Then I must be misunderstanding you.

    But I do see I have used the wrong parameter in the family I posted for the open bit. Add the Open_Dim to to dimension instead of the dw and I think it should word as you want, again, unless I really misunderstand you.

    The Schueco window is just a lot more complicated, but works in about the same way as the example I posted.
