weldment cut list shows expression not evaluated value

Question asked by Andrew Skero on Nov 25, 2019

I have a large frame made of structural members (rectangular and square tubing, c-channel, plate).  The expressions of each structural member is not evaluating to a text value to be displayed in the Description field of the cut list on the drawing page.  Instead, the expression itself is showing up.  The issue can be corrected if each structural member in the feature tree of the weldment is opened in edit mode then closed with no changes by way of the green check mark.  This only lasts until a change occurs, such as adding a new config, or closing and reopening the weldment part or drawing page.  The Item number, Qty., Length, and material fields evaluate properly.  It is only the Description field that is not working.

 

Does anyone have any idea what is going on?  Below are further details.

 

A working Description expression looks like:
TR"V_leg@Tube (rectangular) TR3X2X0.1875(1)@TEST TUBING.SLDPRT"x"H_leg@Tube (rectangular) TR3X2X0.1875(1)@TEST TUBING.SLDPRT"x"Thickness@Tube (rectangular) TR3X2X0.1875(1)@TEST TUBING.SLDPRT"

 

Which evaluates to:
TR3"X2"X3/16"

 

The faulty Description expression looks like the below text and evaluates to the same in the cut list.
