DxDesigner: How to get the full Symbol Name e.g. Resi.1 via Automation and the "Forward To PCB" Attribute

is there a possibility to get the full symbol name with the version via automation ?

CompObj.SymbolBlock.GetName(LONG_NAME) returns only the name without the version.. Also there is no attribute where this name is stored. ( CompObj.GetBatchAttributes() shows all attributes of the component)

The background:

I want to know the orientation of the symbol after placement in the DxDesinger via the DxDatabook. We have e.g. a Resi.1 which is oriented horizontal and a Resi.2 which is rotated 90° but by the drawing, not by rotation command.

Thanks in advance.
