How to get custom property description value from design table?
Vinoth, design tables drive configuration properties not file-level custom properties. Which is why your description parameter isn't driving the description custom property that you're showing.
However, that's not to say that a design table can't run the description that shows up in a titleblock. As stated earlier, design tables drive configuration properties and when a configuration property has the same property name as a file property, the configuration property is what shows up.
In that case, what you need to do is link your $DESCRIPTION parameter in your design table to a description property. You do this using an Excel equation. Bear with me if I'm telling you things you already know.
OK, so what you're going to do is edit your design table (using your above picture as an example), insert a new column and type in the column header cell (row 2) $PRP@DESCRIPTION, and then in the range of values you can equate it to your description parameter in column B. For example: a cell in your new column with =C7 would return the value AN3-10A. These values will show up in custom properties on the 'Configuration Specific' pane.
Let me know if you get stuck.

Welcome to the forum.
The description in the design table is fead from the file properties.
That as well can feed the note in your drawing by starting a new annotations
note and linking to the property in the property manager of the note.
I am looking for a solution to feed the description value from design table to the file properties and not the reverse.
