Instrument location codes in OPPID

Most sheet borders have letters up the sides and numbers across the top and bottom to help in locating items on the drawing. In the instrument table there is a field called 'Location Code'. Is this the intended function of this field? If not what is it for? Could it be used for this purpose?

If the answer is yes, then can OPPID be setup to automatically enter the code for an instrument (or valve) when it is placed in a drawing? Seems like it wouldn't be that hard to do (for a Bentley programmer anyway!). The user would need to define their grid and the system would have to check those coord. against the coord. of the placed item.

I looked online and I didn't see anything that addressed this that I could tell.

Thanks,
