Q - question

Using a YES/NO parameter in Revit schedules.

A - answer If you want to use a logical (boolean) parameter of the type YES/NO in a Revit schedule so that it displays as a text or symbol - i.e. to show "YES" or "NO" or an adequate graphic symbol (e.g. a checkmark or a tick) in the schedule, you will need to create a calculated column with an expression.

First add the given logical parameter to your schedule and then add one more column, wher you will use the expression. This expression will convert the parameter value to a text or a symbol available in the font you are using (e.g. in Arial Unicode you can use the "Ballot box" from the Character Map). Examples:


Then you can suppress the original column.
