I keep getting "Missing data necessary for BOM, needs resaving in SOLIDWORKS" Error when trying to check in assemblies. Resaving in Solidworks doesn't fix the problem.

I am trying to check in the top level assembly for a project. Every other part / subassembly is checked in and released. However the top level assembly won't check in due to the warning "missing data necessary for BOM, needs resaving in SOLIDWORKS".


- I have resaved the assembly multiple times to no avail.

- I have completely rebuilt the assembly from the ground up, under a different filename and saved it in a different location. I checked it in after adding each part/sub assembly to see if one in particular was the problem. I didn't encounter any issues. Then I moved the assembly to the correct project folder and renamed it. Now it won't check in due to the error!


I've spent close to 2 days trying to fix this and have no idea how something like moving and renaming the file can have any effect on it's BOM information - remember this is the top level assembly only - I haven't changed anything in any referenced files that should alter the BOM data. I also can't find anything on the internet about anyone else having a similar problem.


What can I do to fix this? At the very least is there a way to allow me to ignore this warning and check the file in?
