How to Copy Project Name from Assembly to All Parts and Subassemblies

Question asked by Jared Huffman on Feb 7, 2014

I design vey specialized equipment, so the part numbers and properties are project-specific.  I show the project name on the drawing of each component to help keep them organized. 

 

Currently, I use custom properties generated from the Property Tab Builder to assign all the various properties for each component or subassembly.  However, the project name is the same on every drawing, so it is not a good idea to enter it every single time. 

 

To reduce that repetition, I use Advanced Select (searching for SLDPRT) from the top level assembly and assign the project name property to all parts at once.  Then I repeat that for all subassemblies (searching for SLDASM), and then once again for the top level assembly because advanced select doesn't include that. 

 

Is there a way to only enter the project name once rather than three times? 

 

Thank you so much for any help you can offer!
