Autodesk Revit DB Link allows you to maintain a relationship between a Revit project and a Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel, or ODBC database. You can use Autodesk Revit DB Link to export Revit project data to the database, make changes to the data, and import it back into the project. The database displays Revit project information in a table view that you can edit before import.
This table view also allows you to create Revit Shared Parameters which adds new fields for those parameters in the related tables. Any change made to these new fields within the database updates Revit Shared Parameters upon future imports.
There are several ways in which Autodesk Revit DB Link can help manage your projects. One way, for example, is to use it to manage a prototype project. Export the Revit prototype project data to a Microsoft Access database. Local team members can update this database with specific data, such as site conditions and facilities management information. Then, use Autodesk Revit DB Link to import this data back into the project, which is subsequently distributed to team members for construction.
