Hi, I am using a simple BoM with hidden cells. The values on these hidden cells are linked (by equation) to other cells.

I right click on my BOM table and save it as an Excel spreadsheet (either xls or xlsx.) When I open this spreadsheet, it has "Sharing" turned on by default. This disables many features in Excel, but it was easy to turn off sharing, so not a big deal. In the latest update, Excel has eliminated the ability to turn off "Sharing" so now it is a big deal.

No 12 nut is in the BOM table but hiding behind the part. How to show this in the drawing? If you can't attach a balloon directly to the part, you could use "Stacked Balloon" to attach it to another balloon.

I have BOM on a drawing. I notice that some of the items in the part number column are showing the configuration name, not the file name. Those are parts that I have downloaded from places like McMaster where their parts set the name of the one config in the part to be their mcmaster part number.

I need save BOM template with empty rows. I create BOM, add rows and hide item number (I guess - I'm sorry, I haven't got English version). But If I save it as template, and insert to drawing, empty rows are deleted.

I recently discovered that if you insert a BOM in a SW2017 Drawing, drawing views of the components in the BOM inserted afterwards will automatically be linked to it. People have been asking for something like this for a long time, so it's a great enhancement, but somehow it didn't make it into the "What's New" document (or at least if it did I can't find it). Deepak Gupta did some further checking and discovered that this only works if there's only one table in the Drawing (no other BOM's or

B.O.M. Units Is there a way for the BOM in my drawing to maintain the units of each individual part?

Hey everyone, I am trying to automate my BOM's and i am at an impass. Basically i need to automatically multiply the quantity of parts in an assembly by the number of asemblies that will be made. (For instance, i have four legs on one chair, and i need two chairs, therefore the BOM should call for eight chair legs for ordering.) I will have another columb for the number of parts in one assembly. At the top right corner of a drawing there is normally a box where you can input the number of times

Is it possible to get PunchID of the part to the Bill of matterials? Not sure what you mean by this, but getting a PunchID to populate in your BOM would require you to add it to your custom properties (File Properties), but that is all you will see in your BOM. However, if you want it to have a TAG, X&Y locations and QTY...then you will have to use the punch table for that.

I am trying to add a BOM to an assembly drawing and I have one out of 50 parts showing it's weight and not the qty. At this time it is only doing it on the one drawings. Thoughts on why it is doing it to one sub assembly and not others?

I'd like to be able to create a few separate BOM tables on one drawing for a few different configurations of an assembly. The configurations of the main assembly only differ in a few component colors and the part numbers for those color changed components, so it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have a separate drawing sheet for them. So, I created one set of drawing views with the item number call outs I needed and made my BOM.

We are working on exporting our BOM to another system to help with purchasing. (EPDM is not an option at this time.) When we create the BOM, we create an indented BOM with detailed numbering. It would be helpful to also have basically a row number in addition to the item number. I found that I can add a column that has an equation, but I have not figured out how to have the cell add one to the cell above it. (In excel for example, cell A2 would have the equation "=A1+1" and then this would fill

I have multiple parts that are not part of an assembly. I want to put 4 parts on 1 drawing sheet and have the BOM show all 4 parts. Is there a way to do this without adding them all to an assembly? I can only select 1 part to create the BOM, so I currently need to have 4 BOMs in order to show all the part properties.

I've run into an issue where I have an Assy that I need to make a drawing where it would be better to show as a Parts Only BOM and have to manually insert additional lines for few specific assy's. The problem I ran into was that while in the Assy Model, the item would not stay excluded for some reason after saving and closing the file. I was picking parts both at the top level and parts inside of sub-assy's and checking their exclude from BOM box and everything seemed fine, as long as I did not

Good Morning Everyone, I just noticed that when I create a BOM containing a configured part and I change it to Indented with detailed cutlist, that it switches the description and part number of configured part to the first configuration for that part.

I'm working on a BOM with configuration quantities. For some reason some parts are being multiplied by 4 but others are correct. Attached an image of the BOM and the BOM settings. All parts are multiple configurations of a single part (change in length).

Recently I when I try to insert BOM table in 3D assly or 2D, the font size and column width is too large and it doesnt allow to export before I go and manually change the font size. no option to change column and row size. Is there any setting I can update? Previously it was fine and got changed in between.

I have multiple drawings of different sub-assemblies with balloons to each part, and would like to keep the item numbers all in sequence, with each part having its own unique number. So far, for each BOM, I take the last number and start the next BOM with the proceeding number, and continue this for all the tables. However, if i take a part out or add a part, I have to manually update the other BOM Tables to start from a different number.

Is there a way to filter out a component from the BOM. I have a component in my model that I do not want to be shown in the BOM. Andrew Guitar Oct 7, 2010 9:20 AM (in response to mitchell shellenberger) Right click on the part in the assembly tree,select properties and in the lower right corner you will see a box that says"exclude from BOM".

We are trying to import a bom directly from solidworks into Opera 3 (stock/purchasing/accounts program) without modifying it in Excel first. When we import the bom into Opera 3 via excel we have to have the information set out correctly in Excel for Opera 3 to read it correctly. We don't want to assign the assembly number to each part (property) as the parts may be in other assemblies and we don't want to enter it in manually.
