SolidWorks BOM

Hello Everyone,

Is there any way SolidWorks BOM can have qty in decimal (like 2.5) without actually breaking the link with the assembly.

As far as I know, there is no way to do this in SW. We are still in SW 2007, so, I can be wrong here.

Let me give you an example. We buy roll of sheet which comes in the size of 20m. We only use 2.5m for a particular assembly. We have a custom add-in that automatically writes BOM from SW to our MRP system. So, to get the correct MRP, I have to get the 2.5 as QTY in SW.

Does anyone has smarter idea for this kind of situations?

Thank you,
