Using bounding box area in a design table equation

I've tried searching around, but nothing exactly has popped up.  There are so many matches when I do searches that I can't find what I'm looking for.

 

I use design tables for sheet metal part configurations, where most of the time only the width of my parts change. I want the material area to show in my table.   I can get the bounding box area from the cut list properties.  However, I need to take that number and divide it by 144, as we use inches for the part but square feet for the material callout on the drawing.

 

How can I use the "SW-Bounding Box Area@@@Cut-List-Item1@41145900.SLDPRT"  (for example) in an Excel equation, or how can I just get it to show in the table, so I can use it in an equation?

 

thanks
