PDM API SaveToCSV Config Issues

I'm trying to save a csv of a PDM BOM using the  SaveToCSV() method in C#.

 

I select the config using this code:

bomView = (IEdmBomView3)aFile.GetComputedBOM(ppoRetLayout.mbsLayoutName, 0, Config, asBuiltId + (int)EdmBomFlag.EdmBf_ShowSelected);

Let's say in this case the Config name is "Config1".

 

I then save this bomView to csv.

 

bomView.SaveToCSV("c:\\temp\\SavedBOM.csv", false);

As far as I can tell, this creates a BOM from the default config, not the "config1" config.

 

The only difference is the "config1" has a pattern of several of the assemblies.

 

Clicking the "Save CSV" from within the vault in windows explorer creates a CSV with the expected values.

The SaveToCSV() method creates a file with only one of the assembly.

 

Is this a bug in PDM? I would hope the CSV generated from the file browser interface would make one from a program API call, but this appears to not be the case.
