Cross-Linking Block Attributes

by Mark
(Chilliwack, BC)

At the company I'm employed with, we have separate blocks for section markers and section titles.

A section marker has an attribute for the section number, and an attribute for which page the section is located on.

Similarly, the section title has an attribute for the section number.

To save time when making changes to drawings, I would like to be able to cross-link the attribute for the section title number, to the section marker number.

Basically, if I change the number for the section, that number will also change on the section marker (s) on the plan and vice versa.

Is this possible with AutoCAD LT 2011?
