Okay so I have searched and read and I'm still not getting it. I have an assembly of parts each part has three configurations (different materials same part). I want all three configurations to show up in the bom, three configurations one balloon number. I have gone through each configuration and checked use in BOM and the part number I want it to use. Still no joy, they are derived configurations if that makes a difference don't I'm still learning SW. I must be missing another check box somewhere in SW2011, can somebody point me to an idea or thought that I am missing. I read through one or two posts that say have you got all configurations in the assembly does this mean that I have to insert all three configurations separately into the assembly, seems odd.
Thanks for helping.
