custom property equal to system property?

During check in I have a sw system property (sw-current sheet) mapped to a variable but I also need another custom property assigned the same value that is assigned to sw-current sheet. The reason for this is that downstream of engineering there are some programs, that are beyond my scope, that are ran on the drawings to extract particular information from the CAD documents. These programs were written to extract data from multiple file types so the program is written only to extract data from custom properties not from any type of system property.

I need a way to assign the value assigned to sw-current sheet to our custom property (so that these downstream programs work), I thought I had been told there was a way of doing this during check in but I have not been able to figure it out.


Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can transfer the value assigned to an sw system property to a user defined custom property, ideally without the need of a macro or manual input.


Thanks
