Hello, I’m trying to save myself a bit of time and was wondering if it is possible to have part of the file location displayed in the title block? The current title block we are using shows the full file location of the drawing but I was wondering if it is possible to show only part of this? The reason I am asking is that when a project progresses to the next stage we have to go through each drawing and change the status to warrant, tender, construction etc. so I am looking for a way that this can be done automatically and I was thinking if only part of the file location could be used this process could be done by simply moving the drawings to the next folder? Our projects folders are split down in to subfolders for planning, warrant, tender etc. which corresponds with the status field on your layout. So instead of having to update this status manually every time the project progresses this would update to the folder that the drawings are in. Example: I:\Projects\## - Project Title\Drawings\Construction\Ground Floor Plan.dwg Am trying to get the "Construction" folder to display in the status field on the layout. I hope this makes some sort of sense and someone knows what i am trying to get at. If there is another way to achieve what I am looking for all suggestions are welcome.
Has anyone had experience completing this action ?. Basically my boss once me two design in autocad ( blocks parts / assemblies ) then this to run / work directly with sage 200. I think we will have the BOM function within sage, but i'm just wondering how my block list will convert and run through sage ? Anyone who has/is already working like this out there ? If so, any pointers that we must watch out for when linking the two programs would be great.
