I read a post last year that described how to reference an assembly level global variable by copying it in equations and pasting it into a custom property in the drawing file. This worked and I ended up with a custom property referencing an equation for the global variable. The equation was something like: “global var name@assemblyname.sldasm”.

Now if my life depended on it I cannot remember how to copy the global variable in the equations editor. I get the name but not the equation. I can simply type the equation to get it to work but I’m looking for that simple copy paste shortcut.

Here’s a link describing how to construct the equation. I’m looking for the shortcut.

Ok I think I understand better now....

I think you are missing the LESS THAN symbol in your equation. I've attached the assembly I made that suppress' and unssuppress' a component feature. I found another Daniel Ferrucci-Herzberg post Suppress feature using IFF statement in equations? that talks about the equation somewhat.... there's a more in depth IIF post somewhere that talks about Nesting IIF statements but I cant find it....

Am I getting Closer?
