is it possible to link a sheet name to a data card variable? or is it possible to search within epdm for the sheet names at the top of the tabs on the data cards?
Within the variable create a new Attribute with the following details:
Block = swsheetproperty
Attribute = name
Extensions = slddrw
That will bring the sheetname through to the variable.
The complete search card has this ability:
You can map to the configuration name of a part or assembly, but it doesn't look like you can with drawings. For those you add an attribute for SWCfgProperty:Name
thanks mate. would still be gratly benificial to know if you can map them to the data card. but i am guessing that it's not possible with over 160 views now...
hi david, sorry i haven't gotten back to you until now. i never realised you replied to this thread. thanks very much for the tip. that is very helpful. i now just need to find out if there is a way to call a specific sheet name. so for example i want to reference sheet 1 from sheet 2 i can call $PRPSHEET:"NAME@SHEET1" or something like that. but that is a great start. thanks.
