Hey guys!


I'm working with a drawing with multiple drawing views linked to multiple BOMS. Most of the things on the BOM is great, except some of the number in the colum for item number in my case called "pos." are wrong.


I can't manage to get the number in order throught all the BOMs, like I don't want it to start over again from 1, 2, 3 and etc. just cause it's a new BOM. I want it to continue where the last number in the previous BOM stopped. Any simple solution for that?
Another thing i wonder is, is it possible when a part reapear again in another BOM that Solidoworks recongnize that and give it same "pos" number? Only solution i got now is change it manually.

I should also say that i'm working on Solidworks 2011 so if it's a new feature maybe it doesn't work on my version


Thank you for taking you time. Have a nice day
