I'm trying to add a "line number" to a BOM report, but I'm having troubles. There doesn't seem to be a way to create a formula that goes 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Am I missing something obvious?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but SWE does not do item numbers. The expect you to use SW3D for your panel and that is how you get item numbers into your schematic. I had a long discussion with the heads of my VAR about how disappointed I was that something this basic was missing from SWE.
You also cannot export the table to Excel and import it back in directly. I had to go through a multi-step process (using Draftsight) to get this to happen.
I was hoping for some tricky formula hack to make it work
There are no item balloons available either on the panel layouts. I was really disappointed.
I asked the same thing in December and the conclusion was basically, can't be done.
Oh man, YES this can be done, it's not that tricky but I am currently on my phone without access to my computer. Please keep an eye on this thread and I'll have your answer as soon as possible.
