Multi-level BOM

Thanks so much! I am used to jobs where subassemblies are called
subassemblies and materials are something different. This is a huge help
-and it works! Thank you so much for the help - I wish I asked an hour ago!

Sarah, when you add a part to the BOM, there are two check boxes you can use
on the screen which pops up when you do so. One is "view as assembly", which
lets you view the "tree" in the BOM.
The other is "pull as assembly", which pulls the part in as a subassembly,
not just a part.
One thing to realise, is that when a job is created for the parent part, it
will also generate a job ticket for the subassembly, so only use this if you
want to build your subassemblies, and not draw them from stock.
Cheers
Stuart

We are just starting to use BOM's with subassemblies. On a job, setting up
the subassemblies is straightforward. However, in the BOM (engineering
workbench) I cannot seem to figure out how to add subassemblies. I feel
very stupid that I cannot find it but I've been searching and looking
through the help and can't figure it out. I must be missing something. If
anyone knows how to do this, I would really appreciate some insight. Thanks!

William,
Thanks for uploading your BOM program to the Vantage group; very useful,
thanks!

I did run into some Vtg4 compatibility problems, however. Epicor changed
the default format for Part.PartDescription to X(1000), so the program
refuses to compile since the data won't fit at that width.

Here are a couple changes that got it working for me.

~ Line 166:
display bom.level format "z9"
bom.partnum space(13)
part.partdescription format "x(30)" /* added format
for Vtg4 compat. W.Cox */

--------------------------------------------------------
~ Line 276:
procedure showpart:
define input parameter this-part like part.partnum.
define input parameter at-level as integer.

define variable indent as integer.
define variable v-partnum as character format "x(32)".

/* Vantage 4 changed default format to x(1000) which overflows
frame. W.Cox */
/* define variable v-part-desc like part.partdesc. */
define variable v-part-desc as character format "x(30)".

--------------------------------------------------------
