Well, after alot of help from the Techs @ Autodesk I finally got the material description part of things ironed out...
When I was trying to use excel to manipulate the out out I kept getting capitalized letters and the numbers and spaces with no hyphen inbetween (ie. 7 1/2 X 3 1/2) which is very close to what I needed but not quite.....So with the gurus @ Autodesk giving me a hand they came up with this all iLogic code that gave me the prorper out put...
Dim partDoc As PartDocument = ThisDoc.Document
iProperties.Material = "Steel, Mild"
iProperties.PartColor = "Steel"
On Error Resume Next
iProperties.Value("Project", "Description") = SheetMetal.GetActiveStyle() & " x " _
& RoundToFraction(SheetMetal.FlatExtentsWidth, 1/64, RoundingMethod.Round).Replace(" ", "-") & " x " _
& RoundToFraction(SheetMetal.FlatExtentsLength, 1/64, RoundingMethod.Round).Replace(" ", "-")
iLogicVb.UpdateWhenDone = True
Thanks a bunch SWORDMASTER & the TECHS @ Autodesk
I hope this helps someone else as well.....
I figured out that I could do the title info by adding the "Title" from the "properties tab" summary and entering the info in the created column. I wish I had tought of this sooner.
