Add a note in the drawing and link them to SW folder and file name. You note will look like this
$PRPSHEET:"SW-Folder Name(Folder Name)"$PRPSHEET:"SW-File Name(File Name)"
I desperately needed to add this to one of our templates and it works fine.
The only hassle I had was that I copied and pasted the line from your post, and didn't realize
that the S was missing in the first statement: $PRP_HEET !!...
Anyway, you saved my day!

Thanks for pointing it, I'll fix it right away.
This is what I was looking for and is great thanks.
Just a small side question, is there a list of other comment codes that would be useful?
This is what we have as a note on the RH end of all our drawings. It is rotated up 90° so it is readable.
How do I attach that text to a template? I have place a Note containing that text string on the template where I want the information to be displayed but when printing the test page, that text string gets printed.
What am I doing wrong?
Without seeing the file, I'm not sure why it would show the string instead of the value only when printing. Could you check with your VAR to ask them for help to see if there might be a bug or a missing step?
If I understand you correctly, I don't think I made myself clear. When I open a new drawing using my template, the string is visible and the drawing prints with the string showing.
So I guess I am not installing the string correctly.
When you open a new drawing using your template, it may not show an actual file path until after you have saved the drawing (as drawing, not drawing template) and refreshed. After doing that it should show the file path.
Open you drawing template and right click on the sheet format. Now select edit. Paste or add the text string for the path now. Exit the sheet format edit mode and save the template. Now try with a new drawing and test print.
Deepak and Glenn,
Thanks. My problem was that I wasn't in "Edit sheet format" mode.
And for those who may later read this thread and try to follow the above instructions:
1. To get into "Edit Sheet Format", in the Feature Manager Design Tree window, expand Sheet1, select Sheet Format1 with RMB, select Edit Sheet Format" .
2. To get out of this mode, again RMB the Sheet Format1, and select Edit Sheet. Check the mode read out bottom right of screen.
Note, when you enter the last " of the $PRP string, the string will disappear to be replaced with the taregt of that string. Just keep entering the $PRP elements.
Thanks to all.
