    Create a new custom property from a portion of an existing property?

    Jeff Madden

      I am looking for a way to display a custom property on a drawing but remove some of the characters of that property.  For example, the filenames all have a prefix of AA-XXXX and on the drawing I would like to show only the XXXX portion of the file name.  I assume there is no way to do this within SolidWorks, however I would think there may be a macro available that could simply create a new custom property based on the existing file name and remove the first three characters but I have not been able to find anything online.

       

      Has anyone had any experience with anything similar?

       

      Thanks,
