Use configuration variable in part properties?

Eleanor_CoffinEleanor_Coffin Member Posts: 40 PRO
I feel like there's an easy way to do this that I'm missing... I have a part that uses a configuration variable for its length. I want to use that variable in the description for the part (ideally in an equation) so that I don't have to manually change the description for every instance of the part I have in my assembly, because they're different lengths. How do I do this? It wouldn't really work for me to add a custom property for this part because it would be just a few parts out of a couple hundred that need this specific property.
