Displaying Configuration-Specific Quantities in BOMs

BOM quantities are configuration-specific. You can select a configuration for which to display quantities. For top-level BOMs, you can display quantities for each configuration.

To select configurations for BOM quantities:

  1. Click Tools > Options > Document Properties > Tables > Bill of Materials.
  2. For each type of BOM (Top-level only, Parts only, and Indented), specify these properties:
    Option Description
    Show custom text in BOM header. Replaces the default text in the header with text that you enter in Custom text. For a blank header, select this option and leave Custom text empty.
    Show configuration in BOM header Adds the configuration name to the header.
  3. Click OK.
  4. In the Bill of Materials PropertyManager, under Configurations, select the configurations for which to display quantities in the BOM.
    You can select only one configuration for parts only or indented assembly BOMs. Select one or more configurations for top-level BOMs.
  5. Select other options and click .

For top-level assemblies, a quantity column for each selected configuration is displayed. The configuration names, for example, Default and Simplified, appear in the quantity column.
