How does one get a BOM created in an assy to import into the drawing? Is there a way to have this happen auotmatically each time the component is placed on a sheet?
Thank you very much!

BOMs usually update everytime you add a component to it - there's no setting needed.
You can insert a BOM in the assembly via Insert > Tables > BOM or on the Assembly tab in the CommanManager toolbar. That BOM will then carry over to the drawing so you don't have to redo it. Just make sure you use the "Copy existing table" option when inserting the BOM in the drawing.
I'm not looking to update it automatically, but to import it automatically.
Where would I find the "Copy existing table" option?
In your drawing, insert a BOM - Insert > Tables > BOM and you'll see the option to create a new BOM or use an existing one made in the assembly. You do have to create it in the assembly first, obviously.
