thanks you were correct, I inherited this assembly and for some reason the person before me had selected that one make part to be excluded from BOM, I thought about that as a reason, but never checked until you mentioned it.
I just started playing with 2016 so between the new strange colors etc. and menus all moved about the simple things come back to bite us.
Do you've config in the model? If yes then make sure that BOM is referring to correct config.
Jim are you sure the balloon is touching the item. I have seen the arrow of the balloon become sort of just floating in space and it does not know what to associate the number too.
From the online help:
Balloons display an asterisk (*) if:
- A component is set to Exclude from bill of materials in the Component Properties dialog box.- or -
- The drawing view is set to Link balloon text to specified table in the Drawing View Properties dialog box and the component is not in the configuration displayed in the BOM.
