    Default Show View Number and Sheet Number in the same field?

    Is there a field available that will show the view number and sheet number in the same field?

    An example: If I wanted to refer to drawing 1 on sheet A101 we typically like to type 1/A101. This is not a problem when inserting fields into, say mtext, but if I wanted to include an attribute whose data will be extracted to a table, To make this work, an attribute for the view and another for the sheet would be created and separate columns for that data would be created. This is not very efficient.

    A single field would solve this problem nicely.

    Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

    This may be possible with a custom ADT/ABS tag, but I'm not sure about plain Acad.

    I believe in your attribute definition you can insert more than one field. Under the attribute value, just put <insertfield>/<insertfield>, where the fields are your view and sheet numbers.

    That's good to know. I wasn't aware that multiple fields could be placed into a single attribute.

    I tried your suggestion and it works just like I had hoped.

    Thanks.
