How do I get terminals to show up in my harness drawing?

Question asked by 1-TU8MTS on Oct 7, 2010

I've been using SolidWorks Routing 2007 for a couple years now for some fairly complex wiring harnesses, and I just upgraded to SW2010.  In SW2007, my Harness Bill of Materials was an Excel sheet imported into my harness drawing, but I'd like to get rid of some of the manual processes now that I have to relearn some stuff anyway in the major version jump.  We use a lot of Tyco and Molex connectors where currently only the connector housing is modeled and shown in 3D.  With this approach, the terminals required for these connectors will not show up in my harness BOM.  How do I get my terminals to show up in the harness BOM?  I've tried a couple ideas so far with minimal success.
