property text in draft template

I would like to add a field on our part drawing templates that references to the higher level assembly. Basically telling you which assembly the part depicted on the drawing belongs to.

How would I go about doing that?

Thanks

Speaking strictly for myself I don't believe this is possible. There is no property that references where-used. I wish there was.

I know of a company using SE that has such reference on there drawings and I doubt they enter it manually. But I couldn't find anything.

There is nothing out of the box that will do this.  I would imagine it can be done with some automation...

You can use custom properties or populate standard properties.

 

I use a VB macro to populate custom properties easily into a border.

 

You could try something similar.
