Link drawing note to different part file

Question asked by Rebecca Fetter on Mar 3, 2015

When I have parts that need to be cut to mate each other (say, two pinion racks need to be joined for overall length), we put a note on our drawings saying "Mate with XX" where XX is the name of the file the mating part is in.

 

Is there a way to get that to change dynamically in case part file names get changed? I know I can link the properties of the part to its own drawing, but can I link to properties of another part not in the drawing?

 

Thank you
