Room Finish Schedules


Recommended Posts

Has anyone figured out how to create multiple room finish schedules within a single file? I have a large file with many room names, different viewports, and sheets, in which the room finish schedule will not fit on a single sheet. Is there a way to break up the room finish schedule to see only the spaces on that particular sheet, and then have an additional schedule on the next sheet showing these spaces?

When a schedule gets too big for a sheet, I usually duplicate it and then edit the database criteria (by right-clicking on the database header row) to narrow the range of the database- usually by layer. Narrowing it by room number is a possibility also. Sometimes you have to edit the criteria manually though.

Word of caution: pretty much anytime you mess with the database criteria in a worksheet, you have to redo the sorting.

Or, you could create the full schedule on a design layer and then create sheet layer viewports for each portion of the schedule. Simply draw a rectangle around the portion of the schedule you want, leave then rectangle selected, then invoke the "create viewport..." menu command. It should prompt you with a question about wanting to use the selected object as a VP crop. Say Yes and specify the sheet layer you want it to appear on. Lather, Rinse, Repeat....
