Hi,

 

I have an error ("Object reference not set to an instance of an object") when trying to extract the BOM details of a specific assembly. I have used the code from the SolidWorks API on this website.

 

I followed all the instructions from the link below but the code is failing on this line (See yellow highlight in pic below).

It fails when trying to load bom details into the “bomView” object which is of type “IEdmBomView”. I created the bom export file (00000011.SLDASM.1.BOM) with the default configuration also. What am I missing?
