Takes a point defined in one shape's local coordinates and returns the equivalent point expressed in the local coordinates of the shape associated with the formula.
In this expression, PNT converts a set of local coordinates in Sheet.5 to a point. (Sheet.5 is another shape on the same drawing page.) LOC then converts that point to an equivalent point in the current shape's local coordinate system, relative to the lower-left corner of the selection rectangle of the current shape.
The 5 in Sheet.5 is the ID number for the shape, which is displayed in the Shape Name dialog box ( Developer tab).
