Property as a combination of properties

Afternoon, dear fellow Plant 3d users.


The topic might sound amazingly stupid although i believe the answer is easy. The input is the follwing: a pipe line tag of mine consists of 5 descriptors, so the end pipe line tag being something like 80-ОТ-001-01-0 (Nominal Diameter-Product-Segment-Subsegment-Insulation Type properties respectively). 


Now i want to indicate this information in all my related reports such as VLVE-001 mounted on line 80-ОТ-001-01-0. Is there a way to do that whitou diving too much into the programming.


Bottom line: pipeline number automatically generated as property so if can be included into the reports.


Thanks in advance.

Suprisingly enough i came up with workaround...


So there is a "Pipe Line Number" property which i was looking for to indicate the contents of my pipe line annotation. And it was exactly what i needed - set the "Pipe Line Number" to acquisition and as an acquisition target set the "tag" property of "line segments" class. Nice and easy, hope this helps some other ppl struggling with custom pipeline naming conventions like i do.
