    Is there a way to tell which drawing view a BOM is based on?

    Jim Steinmeyer

      Say I have a 3 sheet drawing with 4 views on each sheet and a BOM on each  sheet. I know that I can go into the view properties and set the view to be related to a particular BOM. I know that when a BOM of a configuration is created the Quantity can reference which configuration in the header.

                     BUT

           To date I have not been able to determine which view the BOM was created from. We typically set our BOMs to not show which configuration it came from, or if the config is referenced we go into the header and delete the information. If nothing else the BOM is 6 to 10 spaces narrower. However if I now open a 10 year old drawing and start working on it there may be times that I need to know which of the 4 views it came from and I have no idea how to do that.

       

           Can someone help me?
