Automatically Updating BOM as configuration switches

Question asked by Taran Karwal on Dec 1, 2011

Is there an option to automatically update Bill of Materials as I switch configurations in the assembly? The BOM updates automatically as long as I am in the same configuration but fails to do so when I switch the configuration.

 

I have been experiencing the same issue with the Drawings as well. The Parent view (Front view) updates automatically but all other views (Right, Left, Isometric etc) do not update automatically althogh for all these views I have selected the "Link to Parent" option. All the other views update only when I manually select each view and select "Link to Parent" again.

 

I am using SolidWorks 2011 Pro.
