Wire Numbering Basics

I am trying to get ACADE set-up in our company and I'm running in to problems. Our wire numbers consist of the base wire number (1AC), the sheet number (20) and the line on which it falls (4). This would give a wire number of 1AC2004. How can I automate this?


I have attached a screenshot of one of our existing drawings.


I appreciate any and all help.

Set your wire number format to 1AC%S%N.  If you sheet number is 20 and the zone or rung number is 04, you will get a wire number of 1AC2004.
