How can I change drawing number to reflect the configuration number

In my work we have some assemblies that are all very similar minus the change to a few parts here and there.  I built 64 configurations using a design table to represent every possible way we could build a certain assembly but when I try to make a drawing for that assembly it uses data from the @ parts card.  It's very annoying and I can't get our title block to reference the configuration in the drawing view to import it's description and part number.  Currently I have tried;

 

Edit sheet format; RMB drawing number; Link to Property; model in view specified in sheet properties.  This doesn't work and it reverts back to Current document.  The callout for the drawing number is $PRP:"PartNumber"

 

 

The only thing I can think of is manually editing the drawing number to state the drawing number of the referenced configuration but we want to maintain all links as completely as possible.


I am not sure if there's a custom property to make it display the configuration name in the drawing title block but, if there is, I'd like to learn about it.
