Can DT drive non-feature equation value

I am using SW2008 with SP4.

I have several patterns in my part that use the same Quantity value. My part has several configurations that change this quantity value.

In my equations editor, I manually entered an equation to act as a constant such as:

"Quantity" = 10

Then I set each of my pattern quantities to this constant such as:

"qty@pattern1" = "Quantity"
"qty@pattern2" = "Quantity"
"qty@pattern3" = "Quantity"

Now I want to drive the "Quantity" variable from a design table. What is the syntax to address such a beast? I thought perhaps is was "Quantity@partname".

I know I can skip the Quantity constant, set all subsequent pattern quantities to the first pattern quantity and then drive the first pattern feature quantity in the design table. I just liked my first approach and am now wondering can it be done.

Thanks,
