Formatting numbers in BOM

Question asked by Patrick O'Hern on Feb 21, 2013

Is there a way to manually adjust the formatting of numbers in a BOM?  I am trying to show the square footage of material in my BOM.  I created an equation to calculate the required amount, but SW automatically reformats the number based on my Units setting.   Is there something I can do to the custom property in the part that will "convert" the value to text so that it isn't evaluated?

 

I want to say "105 SQ FT", but SW is converting it to "8'9" SQ FT"
