    Lookup-table for text parameter.

    Is there a possibility to link a certain text parameter to another text parameter with a lookup table so that a certain value is displayed in a different way as, for example, an abbreviation. Example below:

    Parameter text 1 = White
    Parameter text 2 = Wit

    If parameter text 1 is White then parameter text 2 should be wit but as soon as I change a family type then White becomes for example black and should therefore be zwart in text parameter 2.

    I have tried this with a formula within a revit family, but I can't manage that. So now I am curious whether this is possible with a lookup table.

    If there are other tips or tricks which I can achieve something like this, I am also open to them.

    We now have to adjust everything manually in a family and this is a lot of work and it is also a problem as soon as we get a new update from this family we have to do everything again.

    Yes, this is possible since Revit 2019.2

    Lookup table:
    Parameter text 1##OTHER## Parameter text 2##OTHER##
    White White Wit
    Black Black Zwart
    Family:
    Lookup table name (text) = tablename
    Parameter text 1 = <lookup value> (type input)
    Parameter text 2 = <lookup result> (formula = size_lookup(Lookup table name, "Parameter text 2", "Not found text", Parameter text 1)
