Adding Notes With Part Names

Is there any way or any parameter to add the name of a part

to note text. Each of our parts is generated with a PART_NO Parameter but when I enter &PART_NO in to the note text I only get the overall assembly's part number and not the part number of the selected item

Hi John,



If you just enter &part_no:x, where x is a number that corresponds to that particular component's ID in the assembly, then the note will return the parameter value for that component. One easy way to check the ID is to show one of the dimensions of the component in question on the assembly drawing, and then select INFO/SWITCH DIMENSIONS on the menu. The ID will show up after the colon in the dimension. Hope that helps!
