In short: Tables is your perfect Autodesk® Revit® companion, an easy and familiar one-stop shopping solution to boost your productivity in Revit. Simple, yet powerful!

General Usage Instructions

Your perfect Revit companion: Simple, yet powerful.

With Tables, you can easily import existing Revit schedules or - and this is actually where the fun starts - generate your own schedules.

Creating your own schedule in Tables is straightforward and more or less similar to the Revit workflow. Select any cell in Tables and your schedule will be inserted from there. Then click the command "New Schedule" and a selection dialog opens, in which you can select the desired category or several categories. After that, you just need to choose your fields, set filters and groupings and that’s basically it – it’s really simple.

Tables: Spreadsheets inside Revit. And a lot more.



Note: Tables uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer). 

Run the .exe file. It's that easy!

Uninstallation via Windows Settings Panel. But you won't ;)

New Features * Finally: Added support for Autodesk Revit 2023 * New Special List “Shared Parameter Matrix” You can easily document all your parameters now with Tables * New Creation List “Shared Parameter Creation” Batch creating Shared Project Parameters * New Creation List “Duplicate Views”, with or without detailing, dependent * Added options for Smart Creation List “Rooms & Spaces”: PlaceToView, TagFamily to place new rooms in a layout on the given view so you can drag & drop your unplaced rooms to the correct location in your view plan * We have added a new “Color Scheme” command that allows you to colorize your Revit building elements easily and quickly in a 3D view according to distinct parameter values. * You have wished it, we finally did it: There is a new column type in Tables: „Unbound column” so now you can store your own data without having a dedicated Revit parameter * Also, we added a new command button in the TableTools-Modify Ribbon Tab “Reset Styles” to clear Tables own system formatting (e.g., the styles we use for comparing sheets) * In order to write back to Revit in a fine-granular way, you can now also consider values from individual cells. Therefore, we added the new sub-command-button “Apply changes in selected cells * In the settings dialog you now find specific localization options for both application and spreadsheet * And finally, our filter now has a drop-down list that allows you to easily choose the values you want. Changes and Improvements * Smart Reports: All elements now support the Room KeyPlanImage Feature Parameter * Import ViewSchedule with Multi-Categories from Revit (Categories from all elements in the imported schedule instead of fixed category list) * Improved performance (initialize only when the user switches from Revit to Tables) * Create new elements in an existing creation list if the elements do not exist in the current project * Show warning if ludicrous mode is required We added a label in the upper right corner of the Tables UI if our Ludicrous Mode is activated, so that you know when to be careful. Bugs Fixed As always, we have done a lot of housekeeping, thanks for your valid help and feedback: * CompassDirection was incorrectly calculated, now it’s ok again * Key Plan Image works fine now for both MEP and ARC and so does the element image (scaling and centering) * Family parameters from detail components are now be considered * No more incorrect PhaseFilters for multi categories (categories with or without phase, room) * Now we ignore linked element when highlighting in model (because Revit API can’t support it) * ProgressBar didn’t work on applying, now it’s fixed * No Crashes anymore, when reloading a specific creation list with invalid key values * Some Charts couldn’t be changed in Table, now they can * Also, we fixed several localization errors * And of course, as always, the little things…


New Features: - Advanced filter We have significantly improved our filter.

This is our biggest update yet! We needed to change the internal structure of our format, so new Tables xlsx files can’t be opened in older Tables version prior to Tables 2022.1. Therefore, please make sure your entire team is updated to the latest version. • New Features: ◦ Smart Reports You can now document your model in a new way: one element on one sheet based on a template worksheet. You can use this function for example to automatically create “Roombooks” (model based room programs) but it also can be used for complex calculations for one element per sheet ◦ New Smart Creation Functionality: Spaces Creation With this new feature you can automatically create non placed MEP spaces - just like rooms, with all the preset data you want to add ◦ Grouped Fields Summary fields calculating one value for one cell, good for Smart Reports, great for creating simple dashboards ◦ New Feature Parameter: Element Image on Floor Plan (for Smart Reports only) The “Element Image on Floor Plan” - Feature Parameter will generate an Image of the element based on a floor plan (requires settings in the global settings dialog) ◦ New Feature Parameter: Key Plan Image (for Smart Reports only) The “Key Plan Image” - Feature Parameter will generate an Overview-Image of your entire floor with the specific element highlighted (requires settings in the global settings dialog) ◦ New Feature Parameter “Revisions on Sheet” In a Sheet list you can use our new Feature Parameter “Revisions on Sheet” to manage your revisions manually, just use a right click and select the revisions you want to apply -> big timesaver! ◦ New Special List: Warnings You can now manage and analyse your Revit warnings really easily. You can even add a rating to them to get a clearer overview of them (requires settings in the global settings dialog) ◦ New Special List: Room Boundaries For documenting and checking room programs ◦ New Feature Parameter “VersionGuid” (For Revit 2021+) ◦ New Feature Parameter: ObjectType for our beloved Geeks ◦ New Parameter Source for our MEP friends: We added Host & Host-Type Parameters for insulation-lining based elements ◦ New Parameter Source for Geeks: SuperComponent- and SuperComponentType-Parameters for Nested Families to get the parameters of the main family element ◦ We added the calculation type “Min...Max” ◦ New Advanced Command: “Reload with demo data” Great for creating templates for your team, since now you can deploy them with “dummy” data so your team won’t get confused with old project data ◦ New Command "Add Empty Column" in the Tables Edit dialog You can use empty columns for spacers to structure your schedule ◦ Our Filters now supports string/text comparing ◦ We now support all Microsoft Excel workbook file formats ◦ Et, enfin et surtout, pour nos amis français: Tables est maintenant aussi disponible en français ;) • Changes and Improvements ◦ Contextual ribbon pages: Since we are adding more and more new and cool stuff to Tables, we have cleaned up the interface a bit and added contextual ribbons to simplify the UI ◦ Categories can be changed subsequently Heureka! You can now change the selected categories of your schedule afterwards, add new ones or remove existing ones ◦ Multiple tables per worksheet (great for Smart Reports) ◦ As always: we further improved the formatting, this time the evaluation of border formats ◦ We improved the contextual help, you’ll find links in the tooltips to our support center ◦ We implemented a better logging mechanism. In case of an exception you can easily open, view and share the log file via our global Settings dialog ◦ minor UI changes and workflow improvements • Bugs Fixed: ◦ A lot of housekeeping has been done, as always thanks for your help and feedback.
