There is no way to access this information directly, except through the automated BOM.
What most people do when they want to get that information is use a custom property for the part number. If you use design tables, they can be linked together in the design table.
ok I see but I usually use the configuration name as the drawing number but it is only for 1 or 2 parts I have a problem with.
Normally I create a part and if I update it I make a new configuration name with a revision letter.
However for few parts I have several configurations but they all are the same like a unique spring in several compression states. Ideally I would like the same configuration name for all of them but this is not possible so I use "user specify" which is fine for the BOM but not for my drawing.
Moreover, another thing I noticed today is if I use weldments profiles (structural members) there are 2 configurations created for each part (as machined and as welded) and this "as ..." is also displayed when I call for the configuration name on my drawing. Is there a way to avoid that?
