If you'll create your part using the Structural Shape function from the Weldments Toolbar, which I would suggest anyway if you're working with steel, SolidWorks will generate a cut list with most or all the information you need. It will be parametric, so will update with model edits, which will eliminate the need for manual entry of data. It may take a while to set up, especially if you need custom profiles, but it will be well worth the effort.
Thanks for the reply
I think there will be a fair bit of manual entries of data required for what I want.
Trouble is with the cutting machines we have the actual cut length doesnt correspond with the stop setting, and this varies with angle of cut, material width etc which is a pain. They also vary from machine to machine which is an added complication
