Drew, not sure I follow you. The filename and the part number would be the same, although you can't see the filename(in the browser) when using ranges.

Maybe I am missing it all, but if you are using custom iParts and you just want the
filename to show the length can't you just have the users enter the filename including the
length when they save the custom iParts? Have a feeling I am missing it ..8^)

> Sean, I am talking about the BOM, but I didn't want to have to add the length column to
parts list. I wanted to be able to just include it in the description column if a length
value was used. Steel shapes are the only thing that are going to be like this. In MDT6 I
made this happen with the following equation in the BOM Properites Dialog box: = (DIM, 0),DESCR-STANDARD,DESCR-STANDARD " X " DIM)> Basically it means if DIM (which is the
length) = 0 then display the DESCR-STANDARD, else display the DESCR-STANDARD X DIM.

Not sure why filename keeps coming up. When I add a parts list I have four columns showing. The Bubble #, Quantity, Part Number, and the Description. What I am wanting to do is the same thing I did in MDT6. If there is a length I want it to show attached to the end of the Description in the Description column.

OK, I think I'm beginning to see what you want to
do..

 

still no...

 

You want to reference the length parameter but that
parameter is not defined until the user creates the part and gives it a filename
and saves it.  So in the Excel sheet the length is not set till after the
part # is created (which can be defined in the table but it will always be the
same for a given key e.g. a given structural shape.)

 

It may be possible to concatenate this length (if
it's a custom parameter) with the description but I'd have to give it some
thought.  My get feeling so there is not a way.
