    Shared Parameter Woes

    Has anyone had the issue where a Shared Parameter works in one model but the same parameter would not work in another? With our 2011 project we just completed one model just wouldn't pick up one parameter but the other 15 models had no issues with it.

    Now I am creating my 2012 template and guess what? The parameter doesn't work .... :banghead:

    You bet I've seen this (MEP).
    We have a data folder containing the shared parameter file in each new release numbered folder.
    Since Revit isn't backward compatable we didn't want to overwrite families, so we have foders titled
    2008
    2009
    2010
    2011
    2012 containing the exact same thing, pluse what we had created and obtained through the years.
    The problem was, we realized that every user had there shared parameter pathed to a different years data folder.
    Even though the parameters are named the same the GUID's weren't matching. I was using a tag parameter from the 2009 folder and someone made a family and added the parameters from the 2008 folder.
    We have since than had EVERYONE path to the identical parameter file.

    I would guess it's the GUID.
