View label in Base Veiw / drawing

Each time when I place a part in base view, have to follow few steps; go through view label, format Text, than choose type option - [Properties-Model] and its property - [Part Number], than placing dimensions. it takes long time and very repetitive, especially, when placing a hundreds of parts and I was wondering if there is an option, to set up view label; [Properties - Model ]& [Part number], as a DEFAULT. So, each time placing a part, in base view it will come up with correct label. Also, overall dimensions, can it be retrieve using parameters of the part? Thank you!

Attached is a simple macro that sets the view text
and turns it on.

Can you please email me this code from this post? I believe this is exactly what IM needing, IM a little confused with your if statement I think it didn't download right there's no separation I think there should be a few commas in there.

Hi Brian,

Could a similar macro be used to place custom/user Properties into the view label?

Cheers, Mick
