Hope somebody can help with this.  Pretty sure there is a simple solution, but I'm struggling to find it.

I have a series of polylines contained within a single shapefile.  Within the attribute table, I need to provide the start and end grid reference for each polyline in British National Grid format. 

I am familiar with generating X & Y coordinates in separate fields using the calculate geometry function, but i need the data in BNG format (i.e. SU XXXXX XXXXX) for further processing.

Hope you can help!
