BOM Overrides

When you override a value in a bill of materials (BOM) using Break Link, the value turns blue.

When you edit a cell in a BOM table that is linked to a model, you have the option to keep or break the link. With the Keep Link option, the external model inherits changes to the BOM. With the Break Link option, it overrides the value in the BOM.

You can:
  • Change the highlight color when you override values using Break Link. Click Tools > Options > System Options > Colors, and specify the color for Drawings, Modified Cells (BOM).
  • Restore overridden values to their original values. Right-click a row, column, or the entire BOM and click Restore Original Value.
