You can do a search for "Creo use measurement in relation". It will give you the stuff you need to define a parameter that will contain your area measurement. Here's a typical result:

Previous Measure -> Relations Discussion

Once you've defined a parameter, you can use it in a note. I.e. if your parameter is areaModel, in the note text you type "&areaModel" wherever you want to show the value.

Hi,

if model mass properties are properly calculated then model surface area is available in model parameter named PRO_MP_AREA. To display model surface area in Creo drawing create a note and enter &PRO_MP_AREA text into it.
