Show overridden BOM cells?

Question asked by Tom Gagnon on Dec 4, 2017

Is there any way to display which cells are overridden in a BOM? I'd like to un-override them, restoring them to default parametric values.

 

I filled in information to a BOM as overrides while a teammate had read rights on the components. Now I'd like to identify which ones they were (a couple handfuls out of 483 components) so that I can un-override the cells, and properly edit the information back to the components for future use. Current installation Ref: 2016 SP5.

 

The only similar thread that I found was https://forum.solidworks.com/message/22167, which remained unanswered.

 

Ideally, I'd like ability to toggle a visual indication such as a background highlight color, or different text color.

If this differentiation doesn't exist, I'd settle for a command to restore all overrides to default values.

If none of this exists, I'd like to suggest it as an idea for improvement.

 

Thank you.
