I am trying to create BOM with the following properties:
- Displays only the purchase parts (ie, parts not created in-house) in a given assembly and its subassemblies.
- Sort all the displayed parts by Vendor then Vendor Number
The only way I have found to display all parts and parts in sub-assemblies (and even a few assemblies where necessary) is by selected the Indented Assembly option and hiding the parts that are manufactured in-house. But then when I sort, the remaining parts group with parts from their sub assemblies (see attached picture). I have tried moving parts up and down in the BOM Contents window, but the parts won't move to the correct location.
I have also attempted using the Parts Only BOM option, but then the purchase parts that are inserted as assemblies don't show up.
Does anyone know of a solution for this?
PS I am using SoldWorks 2007
