Drawing number cross references between projects.

I am using AutoCAD Electrical 2013 and have a few projects that reference each other.  I've searched the forums and there was a suggestion to use subfolders to seperate them projects but still have them reference each other.  This is working, but the issue arises when I cross reference.  I have set the drawings up so that when they reference on the same sheet is it only [*%N] and when it is on a different sheet it would be [Δ%S%N].  But the two project each have similar drawing numbers, so if sheet BA of Project1 references sheet BA of Project2, there is no distinction between the sheet numbers.  I know I can use the drawing number parameter %D in the cross reference, but this would appear for all cross references.  

Is there a way for AutoCAD to distinguish between two different locations and if so then place the drawing number in the cross reference?  Is this information contained in the signal arrow so that when it sees a different drawing number between source and destination arrows it can include the drawing numbers?  Thank you.

You can add either %I or %L for an installation or location code.
