Is there a way to fill out a part property that contains some of the file name, but not all of it?

Hello all,

My work has SW files in the format of:


E12345-6 Description of part


Where, E12345-6 is the drawing number, and description is something along the lines of  SHAFT 100 X 150 X 500.

I know there is a way to fill out a custom property for the file name of what you are working on, but I was wondering if it is possible to get just the first 8 characters of a file name to populate a custom property?
