Bill of Materials - Part Number Column

You can display a name other than the document name in the part number column of the BOM. For example, you can use a stock number specified by your company, or the configuration name for a part or subassembly that has more than one configuration. To do so, it may be necessary to edit the Advanced properties of the configuration.

To specify the name to use in the Part Number column:

  1. In the part or subassembly document, click the ConfigurationManager tab at the top of the left panel.
  2. Right-click the configuration you want to edit, and select Properties.
  3. In the Configuration Properties PropertyManager, under Part number displayed when used in a bill of materials, select one of the following:
    • Document Name.
    • Configuration Name.
    • User Specified Name. Type a name in the box.
  4. Click .
