The way I would handle it Jocelyn Erchul is to create a Custom Drawing Template with specific "Project/Job" Information, that information shouldn't be in the BOM. The BOM works by retrieving individual properties from Assemblies and Parts and returns that information in the BOM. If you must have that information on an individual Part/Assembly file then I would suggest to put that into those files Custom Property. So bottom line if it's a Blanket Boilerplate Note, then that needs to be in your Drawing Template or added as a Note or Block and not part of a BOM.. But only you know what you want and what works for you, I just stated what I would do
You can have those notes as a custom property in your main or sub-assemblies, then you can call those properties within a note.
As John said, that isn't a typical BOM setup, and I don't believe you'll be able to save it as a BOM template. I realize that you may not be able to change it, but if you can get it changed you might consider putting that information in the title block instead of the BOM.
John and Glenn appear to be right. It's hard to tell, though, because the picture you uploaded is very low resolution and I can't read it.
Just to elaborate on what Glenn was referring to, I'd put that info in the sheet format of a drawing template. I'd use that template for any new drawings using that BOM. And, if I added that particular BOM to an existing drawing, I'd make sure to swap sheet formats and voila, those notes would be in my drawing.
I didn't realize that sheet formats would copy over BOM's! That's really excellent.
This is a BOM standard that I am also unaccustomed to, but the new place I work for uses this standard.
The reason I'm looking for this capability is so I don't have to break links or merge cells for each new drawing project. Similar to the header, I would like to insert a row of text below the standard BOM that has no association with models or drawing views.
I've just had a difficult time trying to coordinate table objects with BOMs, because the BOM doesn't have snapping points to draw onto. Is it possible to create a BOM/Note hybrid block?
You can achive this if you insert dummy part in your assembly like me
5 total rows below are artificial (dummy) parts in my assembly
This is my BOM for fasteners
The last row is a total row too.
One more and the last example
Underlined rows are separation rows for documentation, parts, assemblies, materials and so on
Marked rows are dummy rows for assembly and general view drawings.
IF statements give you the ability to clear ItemNo and QTY cells for all these special rows authomatically.
So, I assigned special custom property "BOM order" for parts, assemblies, fasteners and for all that special and total rows (dummy parts) and now then I sort my BOM all rows are on the right positions.
Genius! I never thought about a dummy part. And just assign whatever custom properties and they'll carryover! Excellent! Have you had any luck with keeping merged cells in a BOM template? That's what I'd really love to be able to do.
No problems with merged cells.
Only two problems in my case:
1. custom property doesn`t have any formatting characters, so, there is no ability to inform SW to underline it, hence, each time you have to do this manually (it was the SW2018 Idea)
2. there is no ability to insert TOTAL function in custom property to get total mass or qty automatically
