Inserting a files properties into a drawing table

Our solidworks is set up so that we input custom properties into the SLTPRT file (i.e. part name, part number, author etc.). Is there a way to pull some of this information through into a drawing, and insert in into a table (not into the sheet format).


Example, when we draw components which we buy off suppliers (i.e. screws) we input the supplier and supplier part number into the properties held in the SLDPRT file, this is obviously not the case for all drawings we produce, therefore only on some occasions we would want the information to appear, preferably via a table, so the information in the table could read;


Supplier :            xxxxxxxx

Part Number:      xxxxxxx
