Trouble with label styles

Ok so heres what im trying to do:

 

My surveyors shoot trees like this "trd 6 12" which stands for Deciduous Tree, 6" dia at breast height and 12' dripline. With desc. keys I have the symbols coming in scaled correctly using parmim 2 ($2) everythings fine with that portion.

 

Now im trying to create a label style that only shows "12' Dripline" and discards the rest of the data in the description. I cant seem to make the "$2" show the real data from the description. I tried just putting "$2' Dripline" in the text contents, which apparently doesnt work, im sure im missing some formatting to make it work in the style, i just dont know the coding.

 

Help anyone?

I believe you need to reformat the description within your description key set and then in your label just use the point description.
