Importing Stuff into Revit Can Be a Pain in the Backside

If you’ve ever had to import a Word doc or an Excel spreadsheet into Revit, you know what it’s like to burn hours on a job.

Importing Word and Excel data into Revit without the right tool not only wastes time but opens the door to errors. It’s the perfect recipe for late submittals containing embarrassing mistakes.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

“What is this magic?”, you may be wondering. What must be sacrificed to achieve it?

Microsoft Office Importer for Revit easily and quickly imports Excel spreadsheets and Word documents (yes, those too) into your Revit project files in one simple step. This includes schedules, general notes, whatever your heart desires or your client requires.

How about a dish of Perfect Formatting with the magic show?

With Microsoft Office Importer you can enjoy perfect formatting automatically. For example, text size, bold, italics, fonts, column widths and row heights all import properly without requiring extra work to fix things inside Revit.

And some delicious “Linked and Synced” for dessert?

No more worrying about how to keep the Excel and Word data inside your Revit file synchronized with changes to the same data outside of Revit. Microsoft Office Importer automatically links them when you do an import.

Don't Sacrifice Your Project Standards

When importing Word documents and Excel spreadsheets into Revit with perfect formatting intact, Microsoft Office Importer lets you maintain control over your project standards (text size, fonts and more) for the imported data while it takes care of the hundred other little things that can go wrong. It handles your formatting and linking for you and ensures the pasted information stays up to date in Revit — all while reducing annoying, repetitive steps.

What Our Customers Say

KSI

“We’ve been using Revit since 2007 and we have been struggling with importing documents into Revit for years now.

"Now that we have Microsoft Office Importer for Revit, wow it’s amazing. It’s been working great – it saves us tons of time – there is nothing like this in Revit. Before we had Microsoft Office Importer for Revit, we’d have to create a pdf, make a jpg then, and it was extremely time-consuming. When you have a big project and time is a factor, you can see how saving hours on every project makes quite a difference.

"Microsoft Office Importer for Revit saves us thousands of dollars a month. We’re so happy to have found Axiom.”

A Revit Tale of Woe

You need to paste a schedule into your Revit file. You have the spreadsheet from the project’s senior engineer. Your job is to get it into the file. But you can’t. There is no way to do it with Revit alone. Maybe you just need to Google it or ask somebody.

But That’s the Way It’s Always Been Done…

So, you run into Steve in the break room. He’s a smart guy. He tells you that you should import the spreadsheet into AutoCAD and then x-ref the AutoCAD file into the Revit file. Shazam! Problem solved.

“Really, Steve? That seems like a seriously hokey solution, but I guess so.” Steve goes on to tell you that’s the way they have always done it here. In fact, the guys in IT even told him that the company keeps a seat of AutoCAD just for this reason.

Giving It the Old College Try

Fine, so you get that all wrapped up with a bow. The DWG is nicely x-ref’d into the Revit file and you are back to doing something you actually went to school to learn how to do. The phone rings. It’s the senior engineer again with more changes to the spreadsheet. He also explains that there might be still more changes to come, or there might not. He says he doesn’t really know right now and then abruptly hangs up the phone.

What the heck?! Okay, back to the DWG that was x-ref’d into the Revit file. You paste in the new spreadsheet and hope you don’t get another call with more changes. That engineer guy is kind of a grump.

…And Then You Google “better way to import Word and Excel into Revit”.

There has got to be a better way to do this. Steve is no help now that this is getting serious. You are sure there are going to be more changes to the schedule. However, you didn’t want to get lippy and tell the engineer to just give you the spreadsheet when he knew it was done.

So, you open a browser, go to Google and type, “better way to import Word and Excel into Revit”.
