## Parameter Relation to populate a single parameter with 2?

Hello all,

Is there a way to write a relation to where a single parameter can be populated by 2 other parameters? Example:

DESCRIPTION= ************

PTC_MATERIAL_DESC= HR STEEL

GAUGE= 10

MAT_TYPE= GAUGE

DESCRIPTION=="PTC_MATERIAL_DESC""GAUGE""MAT_TYPE"

DESCRIPTION= HR STEEL 10 GAGUE

Thank you for the help!

Unfortunately that did not work. I tried it 3 different ways.

How are the parameters defined? What type are they?

I think GAUGE may be defined as numeric and you cannot mix string and numeric values into a string parameter.

Define GAUGE as a string value, then concatenate them again.

Material_desc=PTC_Material_name+" "+Gauge+" "+Mat_type

All of the parameters are set to string initially. However, when I build relations into the parameters, such as GAUGE, when it is populated it switches to an integer per the relation push.

That worked! Thanks for all the help!

Don't forget to mark Ben's answer as correct for those that come behind.

Thanks, Dale
