Auto Update a list of Xrefs in a drawing.

I have been trying to get a list of xrefs contained within a drawing to auto update by using Rtext.

 

I have got as far as using the following diesel expression.

 

Xref's in this file are indicated as - Xref name [Filepath]

$(Xrefs,3,)

$(Images,3,Images in this file: )

 

This gives me more or less what I want but I dont want to show the file path. Anyone know what changes to the expression I need to do to achieve this.

 

Thanks.

OK folks worked this one out myself eventually but to help anyone else looking an answer I simply change the 3 to an 8 and the file path is not included.

 

Xref's in this file are indicated as - Xref name [Filepath]

$(Xrefs,8,)

Images in this file are -

$(Images,8)

 

Later.

Is there a way to filter out nested Xrefs? Dale
