So i asked a question yesterday that i worded badly so ill give it another go in hopes of some clarification regarding the Python link.

1. Is it possible to to make Python write in tables?

2. When i try to extract ElementID it gives me the GUID. i dont need the GUID i need the name. example: YV-001

 

Thanks in advance!

1-You can extract value and put them in an excel file. You can't modify an archicad schedule.

2- You need the GUID of the element and the GUID of the property to retrieve a value:

 

GetPropertyValuesOfElements(elements: List[ElementIdArrayItem], properties: List[PropertyIdArrayItem]) → List[PropertyValuesOrError]

    Returns the property values of the elements for the given property.

    Parameters:

            elements (list of ElementIdArrayItem) – A list of elements.

            properties (list of PropertyIdArrayItem) – A list of property identifiers.

    Returns:

        A list of property value lists.
    Return type:

        list of PropertyValuesOrError
