    Embedded Schedule formatting

    I'm experimenting with an Embedded Schedule to list the equipment in each room.
    I've got a Room Schedule that pulls the Room Number, Name, and Department and then an embedded Specialty Equipment schedule that get the equipment in that room. So far, so good.

    It gets what I need, but I'd like to format the schedule differently.
    Specifically, I'd like to:
    • Move the Room information above the headers for the Equipment
    • Make the Room info bolder and/or larger

    As you can see, in my screen shot, I used Conditional Formatting to add a grey to the Room, but I'm not a big fan fo that.
    It looks like I can't format the Embedded Schedule at all. Anything I do has to be in the parent , and it applies to both.

    Dave- Are you still using the Mail Merge for the RDS Sheets? If you are, this is actually a bit more gradecul to do on the Word Template side, than it is on the Revit side. It makes the Excel file not for the weak of heart... But it DOES work.

      Sadly, we haven't had another opportunity to use that process recently.
      What I'm doing for this exercise, though, they do want a schedule on a Sheet.
      I haven't used Embedded Schedules much, so I'm mostly testing out what they can do.
      Thanks

        Gotcha. With the Merge version, all you need to do is include the Room information in the NORMAL schedule you use for the EQ, as the VLookup and Pivot then parses it out Room by Room.

        Best i could recommend here, is add a field to the front of the scheudle that ONLY Rooms have, to simulate "a header." Not awesome, of course.
