Whats the problem? Are you getting an error message?

There is an error when you load it. I went into the drawing and tried to creat another type, an erroe message said a line was too short and it deleated a portion of the door.
It probably just wasn't a well created family and wasn't fully parametric... not much you can do about it if that's the case, xcept make it right...

I would if I knew how. I could figure it out if I had time. Who ever created it will know what's wrong w/ it.

Well...I took a quick look I can tell you the door doesn't like anything other than a 6" wall. I'll mess with it a little later and see if it's worth fixing...

I also had a quick look.
There are a lot of problems with that family. There are pieces of the frame extrusion about 2 mm long, which Revit has taken a dislike to, when flexed.
There is a problem with the constraints for the open swing portion of the door.
There is a constraint problem with the frame extrusion and with the cut extrusion for that frame.
I haven't had the time to deal with any of that yet.
My first thought was to trace the frame (without the 2 mm bits ) and make it into a sweep, rather than an extrusion with a cutting void. Then delete the extrusion and the void. Then deal with the constraints for the swing door.
there are also a few other vault doors (http://www.revitcity.com/search.php?StartAt=0&Rows=10&keywords=vault&action=searchfamilies) that I uploaded a while ago... I actually created a couple of them, but that was a while ago so I'm not sure how good they are...

One of the other doors worked fine, thanks.
