BOM Equation Incorrect Calculation?

Question asked by Rob Edwards on May 17, 2020

So I've just come to purchase some stock but on the website the lengths are listed in feet.

Quick enough fix I thought  - add an equation column to my BOM.

 

But then I spotted it's not working.  Obviously I can work it out myself but this is a pretty dangerous issue.

Any idea what could be causing it?

 

My Length value is a config specific property and the BOM is sorted by it - I've tried using both the file property and the column in the equation - no difference.

 

 

SolidWorks you scored 4 / 8 and have just failed your Maths Exam.  Must Try Harder

 

On closing down the files and reopening SW managed to increase it's score to 5/8

but on shutting down and restarting we had a regression back to 4/8
