I have a long BOM on large assembly, I would like cut it to two parts to fit on one page, I don't know how to cut it. Anybody know it?
Right click in the blue margin of the left side of the table.
Scroll down to split.
It does have to be narrow enough to fit! Simply right click where you want to SPLIT the table, select "above" or "below" then drag the split section where you will.
You can evern drag it onto another sheet.
Very good it works
I have Solidworks 2011 and that option to split the table doesn't apear when I right click. Any one have any idea why?
Select the Customize Menu at the bottom of thr RMB list and make sure all the options are checked.
Nope, that wasn't it, though I now know something new.
I haven't tried it in 2011 yet, but in 2010 select the row where you want the split
and RC there then the split command should be there in the menu.
Try clicking in a different cell and check if you get the option to split else restart your PC and check.
Nope, doesn't seem to matter where I click, but the split option just does not appear
On another BOM of the same document it is there!!
Because of ths size of the assembly and the fact that it causes Solidworks to crash regularly on my computer, I'm not up for taking the time of experimenting with why this is. As a work around I created another table that is a copy of the first one and then hid the rows necessary on the two different tables.
But if anyone knows why it doesn't show up on this one table I would be happy to hear.
I think by you deleting the original then recreating it sometimes jogs
Solidworks and shakes things up sometimes.
I don't even think that if the BOM was split already that you couldn't split it
again or that would cause the split command not to be there. This might be a case
that if this drawing is an old original creation in an earlier version of Solidworks that
maybe the BOM is stuck from that version. Because dependiing on if this is the case
that maybe the commands now can't have an effect on the bom.
I hope that makes some sense. Good Luck with this.
Without looking at the files it may be hard to find out the issue. I would suggest you to check with your VAR (the person/team from which you have bought the SolidWorks) to help you resolve the issue in case you can't share the file here on the forum.
So I discovered one thing about the split feature.
I have a model driven bom that is linked to the bom in the drawing, which stopped the split command showing up.....Im guessing because the BOM in the drawing is driven entirely by the BOM in the model. Disconnect the BOM in the model and bobs your aunt!! There is the Split command in the right click menu!!
I hope this helps some one.
