Automatic long description within off page connector?

My company requested that I implement the long description of the service within the offpage connectors.  So if the service is "H" the top line in the off page connector would read "HYDROGEN".  And have that automatically applied.  And we utilize 50+ service abbreviations.  While I could just set it to a string value and type it in or at best create a new list and set the property to that list, but both of these options are not automatic.  Is there any way to make this automatic?  If we could use dynamic blocks I could use a lookup table.  If we could use fields I could write a diesel expression.  But both of these are not options within P&ID.


I really would appreciate any help anyone can give, even if it's just getting me on the right path.


tl;dr: if line service is "H" I would like off page connector to read "Hydrogen" automatically.
