No, that's not right. Try just doing a rebuild on the drawing.
Go to Tools > Options > Document Properties > Tables > Bill Of Materials and select Automatic update of BOM.
That was the answer I was looking for. I am using 2007 here the setting is in Tools > Options > Document Properties > Detailing > and select Automatic update of BOM.
Which version of solidworks do you use?
Once i checked that option the bom gets updated when the assembly changes.
I think i have to change this setting in my drg template. because in each drg i have to check this option for the bom to get updated.
Thanks & Regards
I use SW2009.
