Here's what I am trying to achieve:
I have an assembly, comprising 4 sub-assemblies.
The top-level assembly is shown on sheet 1, as is the Top Level BOM. The BOM shows 4 items, each of which is ballooned on the appropriate view on sheet 1.
Each sub-assembly, plus a couple of other bits and pieces, is shown on a separate sheet of the drawing.
I would like to have a balloon attached to a view of each sub-assembly (one on each sheet) showing the item number in the BOM on sheet 1 of that sub-assembly.
So, for example, sheet 2 would show sub-assembly 1, with a balloon showing item 1, sheet 2 would show sub-assembly 2, with a balloon showing item 2, etc.
My problems are as follows:
I right-click on the view of the sub-assembly and click Properties, link balloon text to specified table - only 1 BOM is shown, so that's good. However, when I auto-balloon the view of sub-assembly 1, Solidworks puts in a single balloon labelled '*'.
Where am I going wrong?
I can't see anything in the help that applies to this specific scenario.
Is it even possible?
