how do you get the sheet name into the title block, other that using a prompted entry?

You mean the Number? Add a property field and set it to Sheet Properties

No, not the number. I would like to have the name. By default, all sheets are named "Sheet", but they can be changed by right clicking on the sheet in the browser and selecting "edit sheet". This is the value that I would like to have in the title block.
Thanks

How do you get the Sheet Property to show in a
cloumn in the Parts List to indicate what sheet parts are detailed
on?

 

The Parts List Column Chooser does not have a
"Sheet Properties" selectin under "Select Available Properties from"
box.

 

If I manually add a sheet number column by
clicking "New Property", whatever is manually typed in that cloumn goes away
upon updating the Part list in the browser, (even if I freeze the line in the
parts list). This is on each individual Sheet BTW.

We only support Sheet number and Sheet size not the
Sheet name.

A prompted entry seems to me the best
solution..

If you want to avoid the prompt, the second best
is to define a custom property for the drawing but you will need to
make sure that you manually update the property each time you change
the sheet name. The other restriction is that the sheet name needs to
be uniform over the entire drawing otherwise the property would become
ambiguous.
