Accessing masterdata attributes for text on drawing

I would like to create a text reference for a drawing frame that accesses the drawing's masterdata and returns "Not Applicable" if the attribute is empty, but returns the contents of the attribute if it has been populated. The lisp logic for returning the "Not Applicable" is simple enough, but I have not been able to find an Ikit command that can pull an attribute from the drawing's masterdata. Does anyone know of one?

Re: Accessing masterdata attributes for text on drawing

It sounds closely related to the work you do to make a custom drawing frame / title block. I thought there was a fair example in the help, but I can't find it off hand. Check out TR_ASSIGN in Drafting's help, and in Modeling's help go to Documentation for Advanced users, Integration Kit, Table of Contents, then under the Model Manager Module sub-heading Defining Database Exchanged Attributes.
