Manage DxD sheet numbers programmatically

Hello,

 

I have a hierarchical schematic and I need to organize the sheets in a more meaningful manner than what is allowed through the "setup->settings" approach.  I can see through the navigator that the blocks have a property called $(Number) that dictates the sheet ordering.  I cannot find a way to modify that attribtue programmatically.  How can I adjust the overall sheet order programmatically?  The SHEETNUM block attribute doesn't work nor does the NAME attribute of a schematicSheetDocument.  Is there such thing as an attribute that is specific to the instantiation of a block that I can use to uniquely identify and control the sheet number that the pdf converter will recognize?  It seems that there are no unique properties to the blocks that have multiple instantiations...

 

Thanks,

Nick
