Using SolidWorks 2017, the method described in the link below appears to no longer function... it was unsupported functionality.
I have part files that essentially have a PartNo custom property that is a seven digit number along with a dash number. Example: 1234567-001
I would like to create a custom property called DrawNo. The DrawNo property is to be the first seven digits of the PartNo property.
I'm not looking for a macro that can do this... that is quite trivial. I would like this built in to my part template. The ultimate goal is that this DrawNo value be displayed at the drawing level. I am open to other automatic methods to display this at the drawing level.
