How to show Internal ID/ File Location of part as a Custom Property.

I'm trying to come up with a strategy for cleaning models to do a PDM/ ERP implementation.  I have an assembly that shows different configurations of individual top-level assemblies that contain reused components.


I need to make sure all multiple use parts come from a single source model.  I would like to try to identify models with the same name, but sourced from different files, by comparing their File Name to either their File Location or their Internal Model ID.  My theory is that if I can get either of those into a custom property I can sort them in a BOM.


So my question is, does anyone know how to extract the Internal File ID or Directory Information of a file and display it as a custom property?


Thanks a ton,
