Adding parametric units to a mass properties note

Guys,

In Wildfire 3.0 m160, Is there any way to parametrically add units to a mass properties note?

For example:

Area:&PRO_MP_AREA (SOME UNKNOWN UNITS PARAMETER)

so it reads:

Area: 145.579 in^2

I have searched the online help and the PTC/USER archives and experimented. It seems so simple... (bangs head on keyboard)

I have only received one response to date, pointing to this PTC/User thread: <u>http://portal.ptcuser.org/index.php?module=forum&op=showthread&topic=3&post=67487#p67487</u><u><u>Here is a link to a PTC/User thread I found in my research: <u>http://portal.ptcuser.org/index.php?module=forum&op=showthread&topic=3&post=56556#p56556</u><u><u>None of the "solutions" were exactly what I needed, and from the lack of responses and the request,I think that there is no easy way of getting the units parametrically linked in a note or otherwise in the current software release.At this point the easiest solution is to create a parameter with the information manually createdin it and place the parameter in a note. Not automatic and will lead to errors.This is extremely frustrating, because the information is there, just inaccessible.- marc
