    SW 2014 - parts list/bom pasted from excel disappears

    Jay Maechtlen

      Pasting a list of parts (partial BOM) from Excel on its own sheet - visible and looks fine until save, close.

      When re-open the drawing, the data is not visible. Can click on it and see the outline, but no data.

      Print to PDF is also blank.

      Any ideas?

          Update - problem still exists.

          Double-click on pasted sheet, get 'insufficient memory' error message. I see that MS has a possibly related fix, but I'm holding off on that.

          I created a "General table" in SW, and pasted the data into it.

          Since it is a SW table, the split functions work, and it seems to display ok even after saving/loading etc.

           

          I don't consider the to be optimum, but is viable workaround.
