sheet metal rule parameter

When our VAR initally setup our system for us he made it so the material selected in with the sheet metal rule would appear as the stock number in the ipropertys. I then set the sheet metal rule so the sheet metal rule material also had our material stock number for each different thickness. This gave me a value that was automatically loaded for drawings.

     Now we have migrated to 2013 and in the migration things got mixed up so this no longer happens. I am assuming that when the SM Rule is set it creates a named parameter somewhere.Does anyone know what that parameter is? I am thinking if I go into the parameters of the template and set stock number = to SM Rule parameter I will regain this functionallity.

 

Thank you

Ya, my boss has me running my personal machine at work.

It is a Property, not a Parameter. You should be able to get it by placing =<Sheet Metal Rule> in the Stock Number property.
