How can I display a user Defined Parameter out of the Material in Model Annotations (i.e. in a Note)

When create a User Defined Parameter in the Material Editor and assign this Material to the Part - how can I Display this Material Parameter in Parts Annotations. I want to show it in a Note or in a Table

User defined parameters inside material files can be accessed on the drawing. We have a user defined parameter in our material files to control how our materials are listed on drawings because calling out the material file name is problematic. Here's an example of how we do that:

Drawings:

The note works because we set a parameter in the part equal to the user defined value in the material file using the relations below. 

Depending on where the table displays (part or assembly drawing), you may need to use a different report parameter (asm.mbr.ptc.material.material, in my case for assembly BOMs.)

 

We put the following into the post regen relations in our start parts.

Your question is not clear. If you can provide an example of how you create the parameter and its name, that would help.

 

Perhaps this addresses your query, if not reply with more details.
