Using SW 2013


My company has a very specific format for our BOMs (photo attached). I have a few questions to be able to use SW's BOM.



I need to be able to have a blank row above the Footer. When I try adding a row and moving the parts up a row, the item number then start at 2 because SW thinks the blank row should have its own item no. In other words I want Item 1 to start in Row 3.



When adding a column, is there a way to have no column property attached to it? This is a similar problem to number 1, I want completely empty cells that have no formatting.


3. If my main assembly has more than one configuration, is there a way to add a new column (the new config's QTY) for each configuration, and have SW automatically populate with QTY (assuming all configurations have been done correctly in the assembly/sub-assembly models). Another way to ask this question: is there a way for different columns to populate the table with quantities from the assembly’s different configurations.


These questions are hard to convey through writing, please take a look at my example BOM, I want the SW BOM to look and act just as the example BOM does.


Thank you for your time
