    Quantity in BOM

    Mukesh Prasad

      I would like to have "As Required" in the QTY filed on the BOM for stuff like label, wires, glue etc. Someone told me to add a custom property to the item but when I add the custom property, I have to add another column to the BOM template to show this new custom property. I do not want to add another colum but to have the As Required shows up unter the regular QTY column.

      I did a search but came up with API/macro and I have no idea how to create or modify a macro. I can run a macro but that is as far as I can go. Thanks for any help.

          There is solution without using API/Macro

          You can add IF statement to BOM column.

          First you need to identify this special items. - Add to them custom property - ie. "Extra item" with value set to 1.

          Then add column. Click header and choose equation icon.

          IF(`ExtraItem`=1;"As Required";'QTY.')

          Then you can hide QTY columt and that's it.
