Concatenate Iproperties

165 Views, 2 Replies

I would like to have two fields in the iproperties and then concatenate them together. Lets say one is the the w.o. or project number and the other is the drawing number. I would like to have a third iproperty that concatenates them together seperated with a dash (EX. 200970-301).


Thanks in advance for all input.

We do this with our description iProperty, but you could do it with any standard iProperty or Custom


For example, type this into your description:


=<Title>, <Subject>

 When you type the "=" character into an iProperty it starts a formula, then you just fill in any iProperty name with "< >" and leave everything else outside that as normal text.
