Referencing a variable in a custom property

Is it possible to build a custom property value from variables.

I want to reference the length, width and thickness variables for a part to build a property that reads Length x Width x Thickness.

I can then reference this in my parts list and add the size after the description.

I know that in a parts list I can refer directly to the variables, but some these are not applicable to all parts in the parts list, so I end up with "Description  x x".

We are using ST5.

Is there any difference in ST6?

Just click on the first blank line at the end of the variables table and type in the name. Then click in the "Formula" field and type "Length * Width * Thickness" and then click the Expose box to the right.
