    Copying a schedule from 2017 up to 2018?

    I'm working on a project in Revit MEP 2018. I have a schedule that I want to copy in a Revit MEP 2017 project. Is there a way to copy the schedule over without messing up the original (2017) version?

    Thank you for your help.

    Sincerely,
    Christopher

    Just open a Detached Copy of the 2017 file and don't save it
    Then you can copy/paste the schedule

    or instead of updating the whole project in a detached copy: open the 2017 project in 2017, right-click on schedule and "save to new file" and open that new file with 2018 version (there will be nothing in it except for the schedule so update is really fast)) - then you can copy to clipboard and paste into your 2018 project

    Thank you guys. Perfect!

    Alex, I have a question, by selecting "Save to new file", that will create a brand new version of the schedule, therefore making changes to the copy won't affect the original, is that correct?

    Correct: but just making sure you have the correct logic: the schedule is only scheduling whats in the project, so it wont be populated when you save it to a new file

    I didn't know you could do that!! I've copied schedules between projects, but never to a new project. Kudos!
