does anyone know how to make the SW-Total Sheets show up in a BOM?
Is that total sheets for the assembly detail drawing your BOM is on? Or the total sheets for the line item detail drawing that that particular line of the BOM is referring to?
I suspect this would have to be done with API code, since every drawing file for your BOM items would need to be opened and queried for the number of sheets that are in the drawing file (this info is not in your part/asm file) then that info pulled into your BOM.
Sounds like a challenging programming task. You may want to ask this question in the API forum.
Or a manual way to do it would be to add a custom property to your part/asm files and list the number of drawing sheets after it has been detailed. I am sure this is not what you want though and is probably what you are doing currently to get that data to appear in your BOM.
It is the total sheets in one drawing. i use it in the title block "sheet 1 of 5" for example. i would like to pull this total sheets out in the BOM equation so my first detail in BOM would be total sheets +1. This all happens in one file, the assembly drawing file. trying to show the sheet number the details are on in the BOM automaticly.
