On the standard BOM is it possible to have letters in the Item Number column instead of numbers i.e. A, B, C.... instead of 1, 2, ....
It appears that only numbers are allowed - not letters or other characters.
I thought that might be the case but thanks for the confirmation.
Well there is no option to do that but just curious as why you need that.
What you can do is export the BOM as excel and change the numbers to letters. Finally insert the table in the drawing. But please note that balloons won't be linked to this table.
I have a customer (even though he is a phd) wanted the item numbers to be the same as the part numbers because it confused him. He asked for letters instead.
I have clicked onto an item number on the BOM attached to the drawing and it does indeed change the balloon to reflect the mod so it does seem to be linked. SW2014
Yes but that would mean editing every single cell manually. The only way it'll not be linked if you export as excel and then import back excel.
