Hello again guys,

 

I have the following problem:

 

I want to make a BOM at EPDM, that meets my needs , and includes the column "Measure Unit".

I want "Measure unit"  to get the following values: Pieces, Kg, m.

I try to make a variable (i call it "measure Unit") and give it a new block (Customproperty) which has the attribute called "Measure Unit".

I've tried several ways to make the Part's Data Card, and the most recent is by creating a list called "MU list", which has some values (pcs, kg,m)..

I go then to my Part's Datacard, and try to make a "Measure Unit" Combobox Dropdown (or an other field type), and i assign to it, the MU list, and the "measure unit" variable.

Then, I go to the BOM-building tab, and make a new column as follows ("Measure Unit" column):

Then, i get back to a part data card, I change its M.U. value (eg. to "kg"), the data card is saved, but no value shows up at my BOM.

What have I done wrong?

 

 

thank you for your time!
