I found that the list of components from the from/to list disappears if I change the name of sub-assembly.
Solidworks allows you to insert components from the from/to list anytime using the insert Components button. Any unused components will appear on the "Part/Assembly to Insert" section for selection. However, these unused components will disappear when the name of the sub-assembly is changed.
for example, I changed the name of sub-assembly from [ Harness_1^Assem1] to [ 917000000^Assem1]. After I changed the name, I couldn't call the list out again.
I can't show Harness_1 on the BOM as the production team will not understand what it is, so I need to show them the part name as 917xxxxxx.
Do any one have any idea how to get this done?
Appreciate your help!
