    Can Dynamic Blocks use fields and link to Project Navigator project data?

    I have created a great looking sheet title dynamic block and would like to have the title & number use fields to get thier information.

    i don't know if i'm wrong to be confused or not, but it appears you're asking/wondering about opposites of the same issue here...
    Sometimes, i get lost in my own thoughts and need to ask directions to find my way back.

    I meant to take "not" out of the question before posting. Sorry about that!

    and if you also meant to replace "project navigator" with Sheet Set Manager, then the answer is 'yes'. i do that in our office. i'd post it, but the dsd is mostly custom and not for posting. (you'd just get a bunch of "#######" in the field entries)

    Yes I am refering to the Sheet Set data inside the Project Navigator. The way you get to it (PN or SSN) doesnt matter.

    When I put the SHEETTITLE field in the block all I get is the name of the field.

    Can you tell me how to use fields in dynamic blocks?

    it's the same as regular blocks. have you searched for current or archived ATP's on this subject?

    recently heard of a situation where this didn't work, so always remember that ATTSYNC works to do the same as well

    I had to put the creation of this dynamic block on hold.

    I still cannot get fields to work in dynamic blocks.

    what software are you using? "Project Navigator" is a term unfamiliar w/ me. is it an ADT term?
