There appears to be only one part number field in the routing electrical components and cable / wire xml database.
Which means the BOM report on a drawing can only show this one field.

How can the company part number and supplier name and part number both be shown? In other words how can it be imported to begin with? As of now the only way I can think of is to combine an abreviated supplier or company name as the prefix to the part number all in the part number field. Any other thoughts?

This need should also be common in mainstream mechanical CAD assemblies using purchased components, how does SW handle it there?
