Unit of Measure column in BOM

Discussion created by Ian McLean on Dec 5, 2019

Hi, we want to get a column in BOM linked to the unit of measure (ea, m, g, etc) of each part (for easy import into MRP system).
If I put a "Unit of Measure" column in and select "Unit of Measure" in the drop down list of properties nothing appears in the column.

What is this property linked to?

Is there a way to link a column in the BOM to the part BOM quantity, be it the default (ea or -none-) or whatever is selected in the "BOM quantity:" in the part?


OK, I see "UnitofMeasure" is a default in properties.txt.

But even if I put something in that property it doesn't seem to show up in the column.
