Obtain feature count from mfg file?

Obtain feature count from mfg file?

Folks,

I have a model of a plate where the holes were defined with sketched circles, then extruded. The designer did this for several different groups of holes. The holes are called out in the drawing by a GDT note with the quantity called out by a text note, not a parameter.

Creo 2 (M100) MFG is able to find the holes without any headaches. I'd like to automatically populate drawing notes (and NC seq. comments) with the quantity of features but I'm not sure how or where to get the number of holes in a machining sequence. Each hole making sequence shows the quantity of holes to be drilled in the collector Reference dialog box, but where is this quantity stored? Is there a parameter that I can query that holds this value?

Any help will be greatly depreciated 😉

I fear the quantity is not stored anywhere for use as a parameter.

The references themselves are stored and probably they are counted and displayed ad-hoc in the dialog.
