Linking notes to unused configurations

Question asked by Ryan Doran on Mar 29, 2016

I want to know if there's a way to link part of a note in an assembly drawing to pull a custom property of an unused configuration of a part.

I have a view in my drawing that specifies a part, but a different configuration of the assembly uses a different config of the part with a different number.

The part actually shown gets its own callout with $PRPSHEET:"Part_Number" in the text field. (Evaluates to D-121052 below)

However, rather than having an additional view of a different config to pull the correct part number, I just want it to be resolved in the note, itself.

I'm thinking something along the lines of $PRPSHEET:"Part_Number@specified config name"

Is there any way to achieve this? It seems there should be a substantially bigger resource available for custom property coding that can be utilized in notes than there is. I've looked and looked, and can't find anything.
