Sheet Metal Gauge Tables and Custom Properties

So here's my question. Is there a way that I can link a note from a table that directly corresponds to the selections made when creating a sheet metal part? If select sheet metal, my table, set my parameters from my table (thickness, radius), would there be a way based on any the selections made to drive information to a custom property? I have a spread sheet for calculating for flats that when I select my sheet metal parameters it will automatically tell me this...(as an example)...

3/16 INCH - 7 GA Stainless Steel 0.268 Bend Radius 1.575" OZU-828 Tooling Dev. Of 0 Per Each Bend


I would like to have this note linked to a custom property so I could pull that property up on a standard sheet metal drawing template calling out the material and tooling for fabrication.


Like I said i have a spread sheet that will calculate flats and call out material information and the desired tooling based on input from the user. I was wondering if I could achieve the same streamline functionality with S.W.
