adding a converted dimension as a note in a dimension box

I was wondering if using a macro could fill in an annotation into the dimension text box? Our parts shrink in a furnace. I was wondering if it was possible to fill in a dimension text that takes the primary value and divides it by .810? Then have it loop through every dimension on the print. I could do this in the part file itself or do it in the drawing with smart dimension. could maybe have it pop up a window and ask what the conversion figure(.810,.811,.812, etc.) is??

I put in an enhancement request years ago about being able to control the "DUAL" dimension conversion figure instead of metric to be a value desired by the designer.
