User wants to create an associative measure, and then reference the p# that creates, to engrave text on the part.
The associative measure is created, and the p# has a number type. But when you go to Curve, Text, check the Reference Text box, so that Select Expression" becomes available, and click that, the measure p# is not available. it seems, only string type expressions are listed. Unlike in drafting, where you can select any expression, and have it's value displayed in a note.
I've tried using an intermediate expression, trying to create an expression named Bob, formula is the measured p#, but as soon as I change it to a string type, it fails.
Is this possible?

Using the intermediate expresion 'G' shown below it worked for me (in NX8.5):
