Field, object, viewport, standard scale

Don't know how this managed to happen but the formats got deleted and now the one that is there does not work.
Here is the expression from 2010:
%<\AcObjProp Object(%<\_ObjId -1082180376>%).StandardScale2>%

1" = 100' displays "10"

Here is the expression from 2009:
%<\AcObjProp Object(%<\_ObjId -1080213672>%).StandardScale \f "%en0">%

1" = 100' displays "1" = 100'"

Anyone know how to change and add the formats manually. Work around is custom scale display name, it just all of our old title blocks use that field and its messed up. Was this an intentional change or a mistake?

Not quite sure but this might be an AutoCAD question not a civil 3D question. Is the version of Autocad installed with civil the same as the autocad by itself?

Work around:
So you can copy the expression text directly into an Mtext window and have it work. You have to obtain object ID on your own.
This worked for me.
%<\AcObjProp Object(%<\_ObjId -1081175384>%).StandardScale2 \f "%en0">%

For 2009 and previous drawing fields it seems all you need to do is add the "2" onto the end of standardscale.
