Have you inserted BOM table before adding balloons to your drawing, since the drop-down list for selecting BOM table is empty.
Yes I have inserted the BOM before placing the drawing view. I have replaced the BOM several times throughout the drawing to include new parts added to the model. I have replaced the views a few times as well and still nothing .
I have taken a look at the SOLIDWORKS Knowledgeable and it suggests this issue is related to two possible things.
1. add-ins -
To resolve this problem, enable all add-ins in the Tools -> Add-Ins menu. If the problem is resolved, it may be possible to identify the specific add-in which resolves the problem by a process of elimination.
Disable the add-ins on by one until the problem reappears
2. Registry - for this i would recommend a registry reset.
Ensure solidworks is closed down
HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > SolidWorks
I normally right mouse click on the SolidWorks folder, select rename and rename it as an old registry with date i did it, something like this: - "SolidWorks_Old_DD.MM.YY"
When you boot SOLIDWORKS again all the settings should have been reset to default, so you will need to agree to the licensing agreement again etc.
re-open and try the drawing again
if neither of these options work i would try recreating the drawing in a different drawing template as it may have become corrupt some how.
Please let me know if this resolves the issue or not
Got a few ideas from reading your post that I am going to try.
Will let you know as soon as I've tried these later in the week. Got a few drawings to finish and I am careful about editing the registry as this might cause a few unintended problems.
Hoping it'll work now!
I ran into the problem again the other day.
It seems like the error was that I set up two conflicting BOM's. When I set the second 1 to not change the part number, the problem seemed to be solved.
