Truncating Prefixes in drawings

We use filename for pat numbers in our BOM, however with PDM we elected to use various prefixes to ensure unique filenames. 


When listing things on a drawing there is a big leading prefix that takes up a lot of room. 


How do you guys handle this?  I was thinking of using a part name property that we could display on the BOM that avoided the prefix, but that requires entering that info each part created as well as saving the file name.  I would like to two to be connected minus the prefix, but I don't know if that possible. 


Or is there some other method that might fix this issue.
