Layer name filtered title

Recommended Posts



I want to create layers that have names like H-1, H-2, etc.


Once the layer is created, then I want the layer name to reflect in my title block (I am not using the VW Title Blocks, etc.)


However, I don't want the whole layer name since my drawing title already has the prefix job number.


I only want the 1, 2, etc.


I was thinking a worksheet that had the formula =copy (ActLayer, Pos('-', ActLayer) + 1, Len(ActLayer-Pos('-',ActLayer)))


I didn't want to use a macro since the title block is on a layer of it's own at 1:1 and the drawing layers maybe 1:25 or something else to the location of the layer number could change per layer.


What thoughts do you have?
