    There's no great way to do it that I found, but the way that I did it in my experimenting was to create a Yes/No Project Instance Parameter "Exclude from DA Schedule" and add it to Spaces. Then I created a Filter in the Schedule "Not Equal to YES", which created a checkbox next to each Space in the schedule. Checking the box causes the Space to vanish from the schedule. More manual labor...

    Hi All,
    I was surprised to realize that you cannot include this info within a Schedule - I'm coming from the Architecture side where most custom families can have a room/space selection. Another workaround, depending upon the data you need, would be to use a Multi-Category schedule and filter on Category=Duct Accessories. See here for more detail: http://screencast.com/t/ACk9YsqxHGVY

    Of course the downside of using Multi-Category is that you may not have access to all the parameters you need, just thought I'd throw it out there.

    That's the solution I was looking for ! I forgot about mulitcatigory schedules. This is way far better than embedded schedules. Thanks a alot !
