Ideate Sticky is a powerful tool that allows you to live-link Microsoft Excel files in Revit as Schedules. Any changes made to the Excel file can easily be updated in your Revit model, either automatically or with a simple click of the update button.

Since a Sticky renders itself in a Schedule header, limitations of features in a Revit Schedule header prevent us from splitting a long Sticky directly in Revit. The body of a Schedule, however, has this feature. Luckily for us, we can easily and effectively accomplish the splitting of a long Sticky directly in Excel. Once accomplished, you can simply link each of the split Stickies into your Revit model as separate Stickies.

Example of one Sticky split up into multiple Stickies using the OFFSET feature in Excel. This feature allows the user to simply input the number of rows of data they want in each split Sticky and Excel will elegantly split the data evenly.

To learn more about this process, watch this detailed video on splitting long Stickies.
