You did not provide enough info to determine exactly want you intend. But I am guessing that you are using Excel to bring in your cost data. Schedules have this ability but can be limited.
You might check out the use of Python to further your control. At this point python has no capability to create classifications or properties but it seems that you already have that set up
I've used a external Excel SS as the fill in for cost properties for different objects as a office standard dictates. The architect only has to bring in the library part and the python program will automatically fill in the related data as predetermined for the project. The advantage is that you can be selective as to what is filled in ,using previously decided data. and the designer does not have to fill in properties or send them out to be filled in if they have been previously agreed upon. Works very well and takes some load away from the designer.
