Get Components in Each BOM Table Row Example (VBA)

This example shows how to get the components in each row of a BOM table annotation.

' Preconditions:
' 1. Open public_documents\tutorial\assemblyvisualize\food_processor.sldasm.
' 2. Make a drawing from the assembly.
' 3. Select Insert > Tables > Bill of Materials.
' 4. Ensure that Parts only in BOM type is selected.
' 5. Ensure that Display configurations of the same part as separate items
'    in Part configuration Grouping is selected.
' 6. Click OK.
' 7. Click anywhere in the drawing to insert the BOM table.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Gets the Bill of Materials1 feature.
' 2. Gets the Default configuration.
' 3. Processes the BOM table for the Default configuration.
' 4. Examine the Immediate window.
' NOTE: Because the model is used elsewhere, do not save changes to it.
