Hi! I am trying to import data from Excel to Revit Python Shell in order to verify if some parameters exist in the Revit file for selected categories of objects. But I am having some problems in the first 'for' loop.
The first step to achieve what I wanted would be to get all the elements of the categories that I want to analyse. I've tried a lot of things, but I always end up in this situation shown in the picture. I searched for a method to transform string into builtincategories, but I did not find anything.
Here is the excel file:
Does anyone know how to deal with it? Is there a way to transform string into builtincategory or is there another solution for this?
