Custom Properties linking to filename.

There was a thread regarding this subject back in May. I tried to reply
to it but couldn't get it to work.
Here is a link to the original thread:

I would like to try the macro feature method, but I can't seem to figure
out how to copy/paste the code and make it work in my part files.
Can anyone help with this?
I'm open to a good how-to or sample part file.
Also, could this method work for assemblies as well? Macro "feature"
seems to indicate that it won't, but .....
Thanks guys.

I gave up on this issue back on 05-06-03 when I first started that thread. I just played with it again and found that if you set $PRP:"SW-File Name" as the custom property value, it will actually add the filename. I don't think it used to do this when I asked the question back in SW03. But it does now (SW04 SP3.0). I also did a "Save-As" a new filename and it updated properly.
Now, if I can just remember why I needed to do this way back then, this may be useful....
