Recently I have not been able to overwrite the text in a BOM like change the qty manualy and if I insert a line I cannot add any text to any of the fields.
Is there somthing that I have turned on or off?
soild works 2011 x64
Go to Tools > Options > Advanced and check the message under Dismissed messages that says " The cell value is parametrically linked to........ "
Now next time when you try to edit the value, you will be prompted this message, so make sure to select yes in that to get the access to edit.
Thanks that worked
I am struggling in editing my BoM to do a manual edit. Can anyone help.
I am unable to try the options mentioned above in 2017 premium edition SW
Robert why would you want to manually change the qty? I would just add the other part to the assembly and it would always show up in the bom, even when you copy the assembly to make a similar one.
I think Roberts issue is resolved in 2011. Since the question he posted is same which I have I raised in the same thread. I am looking to add some material details of Tool Box Parts to the BoM which generally wont be present by default other that some number like 7750.
Also the solution given here to update BoM "Tools > Options > Advanced" I am unable to find in 2017 premium edition SW.
I deleted the BOM, reinserted, and was able to edit.
