    Multiple Custom Properties into Variable

      I'm trying to figure out how to parse multiple custom properties into (1) PDM Standard variable. For example I have custom properties within a SW part file called:

       

      CATEGORY

      DESCRIPTION

      PURCHASED-CAT

      SUB-CATEGORY

      VENDOR

      VENDOR PART NUMBER

      PURCHASED-DESC

       

      CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

      PURCHASED-CAT SUB-CATEGORY VENDOR VENDOR PART NUMBER PURCHASED-DESC

       

      The kicker is the fact that not all of these custom properties are always filled out. I have grouped them into (2) different sets showing the string breakout that I am looking for. I would like to parse these properties into a variable called "BOM DESCRIPTION" How could I go about getting this working? I tried using the CustomProperty attribute but that would only parse a single custom property, whereas I'm trying to combine multiple ones.

      Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
