Retreive $PRP variables as a string in solidworks VBA

I have a need to extract the sheet size (A,B,C,D,E) from drawings and have searched rather extensively for a solution, but now I am becoming frustrated with how difficult this is becoming.  Is it possible to get the solidworks built in (not custom properties) in string format?  If so, how is it done?  An example would be great, as I have found a list of what the variables are called but cannot figure out how to use them!  Just as a little background, the sheet size is used in our part numbering system, the rest of the number is easy because it's all custom properties but sheet size is not!  Thanks!
