We are currently manually creating BOM outputs and then sorting and adding quantities in Excel. How can I use API and Macro's to do this? We typically have a top level assembly with several repeating sub assemblies below the top level. Our purchasing department is requiring us to supply a BOM with a single line per component with a total quantity for the top level assembly. The current way we are doing it is prone to mistakes.
BTW, I know NOTHING about API. Are there any textbooks/reference manuals out there for Solidworks API?
We are currently running SW 2019 on a combination of Windows 7 and 10 on our design computers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
