Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing a schedule view, part of Up and Running with Revit.
In this movie, we'll continue our look at schedules by going a little deeper and…customizing the furniture schedule that we completed in the previous movie.…So in the previous movie, we created this furniture schedule, which essentially just…gives us a count of items that we have in our project.…And so this could be useful to help our building owner know how many pieces they…have to order. So perhaps the building owner has come…back to us and said well what I'd really like to know is how many people I can seat…in my restaurant. The wrinkle there is that we can't just…simply say well you know jsut count the number of seating objects you have.…That would work for the Broyer chair, because you can only seat one person per…chair, but what about the booth seating? The booth seating's a little bit more of a…challenge. Because you can sit more than one person…on each of those booths. So furthermore, we can't just use the…totals in the schedule, because the schedule also includes the tables.…
So there's a few things we need to do. We need to get the tables off of this…
Note: The techniques shown in this course will work with any version of Revit, but due to backwards compatibility issues, the exercise files for this course will only work with Revit 2014. Unfortunately, we cannot downsave the files. Please see a Revit 2013 course for usable files.

Q: Will Revit 2014 files work in a previous version of Revit? Will the exercise files for this course work in Revit 2013?
A: Revit file formats are not backwards compatible. A new file format is introduced with each new release. Newer versions of Revit can open older version files without issue. However, files will be upgraded to the latest file format during the initial open. Once saved in the current version, there is no way to save them back to a previous version. Therefore, it is important to consider this issue carefully and discuss it with all project team members before beginning a project. For example, it is not possible for the architect to use a newer version of the software than the consulting engineers and vice-versa. All members of the team must collaborate using the same version/file format. This course was authored using Revit 2014. Therefore, its exercise files can be used with any flavor of Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure, or LT) 2014 and later. Files cannot be opened with versions 2013 and prior.
