In our company we use file name as PN in BOM and Description as a custom property.

We need for some components to have the two values defined in the Configuration properties and it does not work.

I tested on my computer and also on a computer with a new SW installation- same results.


Has any of you experienced this and found solution?


Here is the sequence:

- Create a part

- Set Cfg properties to use Cfg name as PN and Description in BOM:

- Save and insert the part in an assembly

- Save assembly, make a drawing and insert BOM. and here is what I get:

If I go back to the part, open Cfg properties, click OK and then Ctrl+Q and Save then the drawing BOM shows correct fields:


Just to clarify- we are at SW2018 SP3
