    from/to room data in door schedule of a host model

    I am working on a very huge project that is linked with multiple models. I am trying to create a door schedule with from/to room data in host model and it results blank for from and to data cells.
    I am using revit 2017.1, include elements in links is checked when generating. all other data I extract is ok,but from/to data is always results blank.
    Every idea will be appreciated because of a deadline i have in a couple of days.
    thanks in advance.

    Are the parameters for the from/to room fields in the linked model(s) and/or door families? Are the rooms in the linked model(s)?

      Are the Rooms in the Linked File as well?

      I havent used those fields in over a decade, so i dont remember if they work if BOTH the Doors and Rooms are in the Link.

      If your Doors and Rooms are in different models, you are hosed. They 100% wont work.

        I don't have '17 installed any longer, but as long as both rooms and doors are in the same model it is working in '20.

          I'm in the same situation but it's too late now to change my models to have doors and rooms in the same file. Is there another way?
          If not I may have to bite the bullet and type in room names manually...

            If you don't want to duplicate rooms... there's an add-in called RV RoomLink. It gets room data from revit links directly to your model, with support for doors and windows. Just google it.

            Another option is still copy rooms over to get the required data, copy that data to a custom parameter, and then delete copied rooms.

              If you have a little bit of time, this is a great use-case for Dynamo. Reading the locations of the Doors and comparing them to the Rooms in the Linked file is perfectly possible.
