Part Properties Populate Titleblock?

I've been through this forum and found lots of discussion around titleblocks and getting part property information to populate certain fields, I just can't get it to work. Here's what I'm doing....

 

I create a part and set the desired BOM description and part#, as well as create a new property for StockNo

I then create a new drawing and place a view of the part. I edit the Sheet Format and insert a Note. I select Link to Property but none of the properties appear in the list

So as a test I select Configuration Name

And thats what appears, even when I exit editing the sheet format

 

So my questions...

  1. How do I select the configuration description and part# to use in my titleblock?
  2. How come my custom properties are not appearing to be selected for insertion
  3. Why when I link to a part property do I only get the name of the property and not the actual value?

 

Hopefully this makes sense, any suggestions is greatly appreciated
