It`s possible to make custom Part number property and assign value to it by expression.It`s very good feature.
But I can`t make the same for SW-Part Number property which is used in BOM.
It is not good to use two part numbers in general.
If you write $PRP:"PartNo" in Bill Of Material options I would understand you that time.
Thanks to Bill Toft in this post Is it possible to group BOM items by certain properties?
SW-Part Number itself is a expression for extracting file name. Why you want to change it. For BOM you can set a different property or set the value in the configuration properties.
Now SW-Part Number is not an expression.
You can assign it only to:
"Document Name","Configuration Name" or "User Specified Name" from configuration property dialog.
Why it`s impossible to choose custom property from the same list?
At the same time I tried to make other task - to assign SW-Part Number in configuration property dialog and assign this property to my custom iPartNumber=$PRP:"SW-Part Number" without success.
My bad, I mistakenly read it as SW-File Name.
Why you want it ti assign to a custom property? Where that value for SW-Part Number would come from?
I have a rectangle plate and I want to assign "Plate AxBxt" to SW-Part Number, where A is width,B is Height and t is thickness.
For this I have to use custom property dialog expression because where is no the same functionality in configuration property dialog.
And there is no "SW-Part Number" property in "Configuration specific" tab.
And I can`t assign iPartNumber=$PRP:"SW-Part Number"
Why can't you use/set iPartNumber= Plate Width Dimension X Height Dimension X Thickness
Yes,I can and I`ve done but how to assign iPartNumber to SW-PartNumber after this?

Why you ant to do that? Why not use iPartNumber in the BOM?
I can of course but why there is SW-Part Number. BOM,balloons, configuration properties and so on are linked to SW-Part Number by default. And I want to use this default way. All I need now is putting SW-Part Number property to "custom configuration" tab.
Sorry could not think of a way to do that. Not sure even if this is possible.
I`m sure it is possible. I found "SW-Part Number" property in Name list of Property Tab Builder. So you can set SW-Part Number property in property dialog
but unfortunately without result, because SW read some other "SW-Part Number (BOM)" property from configuration property tab.
So then you make drawing with BOM you get
My qwestion is what is the name of this Part Number (BOM) property and why it`s not in Configuration Specific Property tab where it`s possible to set expression to it (based on dimensions of model for example)

You can type in anything in the Property Name.
What is the name of SW-PartNumber (BOM) property?
I want to return to this problem in view of this idea Allow equations (including if/then statements) in defining custom properties.
Imagine, you use fileName for [SW-BOM PartNumber] mostly but at the same time you want to use custom property for this.
If I make custom iPartNumber property I`ll have to have two columns in my BOM.
Yes, I`ve created my custom PartNumber and sometimes It get FileName or ConfigName or some equation based on dims.
I know this workaround and use it.
Here, in this post, I want to ask SWX to expand functionality by adding ability to assign custom property to [SW-BOM Part Number]. In this case we don`t need to create custom PartNumber property.
