Can anyone tell me if it is possible to assign the first 4 digits of a project folder name to the prefix of the sheet name and have the Sheet indexing tool pick up this value and assign it to the sheet name
I think I speak to most MS users. A project will consist of a project name followed by a description. ie 1777 East Ham Market. (see below). Thus, within the sheet name the actual sheet file will be called 1777-0001, 1777-0002 etc.
This means the sheet indexing tool cannot assign a sheet name.

In this case I would suggest the use of WorkSet Properties in conjunction with the automated numbering of the sheet index.
Once the above is set up you would set up a seed file to be used in creating sheets. The seed file would contain a text field where desired made up of a conjunction of the workset property and the sheet number
