Is there any code or way i can get the raw description to show up in my format?


For instance, my point decription is P01 10", the "code" is P## and the Format is currently 10" Pipe but I would like it to read 10" Pipe P01.


How do I modify the format for it to include the raw description? I tried 10" Pipe P## but it shows up just like that.

Try "$1 Pipe $0" (don't include the quotes).


Hope this helps.

I believe you want your format to be


10" Pipe $*


this will have you full description be 10" pipe and the entire raw description.
