Substring in Annotation

Hi All,

 

I have created a major-minor revision numbering system in PDM that works fine on test, I just need to get the major and minor numbers to show it different boxes in the title block of the drawing.

 

The two options I have are:

  1. Split the revision number into two PDM variables/document properties in the PDM workflow - I've exhausted all possible way of doing this, it appears it isn't possible
  2. Show a sub-string of the current revision number in the title block (i.e  left 2 characters for "part revision", right 2 characters for "issue")

 

Does anyone know how this might be done (without writing a macro)? I've looked all over and can't find a sub-string, mid, left or right function.

 

Regards,

 

Guy
