    Question Column Schedule Acting Weird

    Hello,

    Working in REVIT 2021 and fairly new to using Column Schedules. We have used them in the last few projects and they have worked great but, this current project is doing something weird.
    This is a 3-Story Self Storage building. Most of the building is CMU except for two corners of the building which are 6" metal stud walls with tube steel columns.
    In the column schedule they should be labeled as A-1, A-2, A-3, etc... but, instead they are showing like this A(3-5/8")-1,A(3-5/8")-2,A(3-5/8")-3,

    Not sure where the 3-5/8" is coming from. All of the columns are centered on the grid lines.
    Also, all of the tube steel columns in the interior of the building are working perfectly in the schedule. Just the columns in the exterior walls are giving issues.
    Check the image and let me know if anyone knows why its doing this.

    Thanks for all the help!

    Those particular columns must not be centered on the grid, they show up offset if you have that checked.
    If you don't have that checked, you may not see them at all.

    What exactly are those columns? Are they CMU pilasters? or steel? or concrete?
    If CMU or Concrete, it may be easy to think they are centered but are not.

    Either way, Revit thinks they are not centered on the grids, you may want to align them anyway if you think they are.

    Nevermind, it was operator error. We had a couple extra grid lines that needed to be added. Everything working great now.

    @tedg Thanks for the info! That would have definitely worked as well!
