Okay, I have scoured every SW reference book I have to findsomething about this and have found nothing. I hope one of you canhelp.

We do all of our assembly drawings for the shop floor inconfigurations and send them to a drawing(s) so they can followalong step by step. When I insert the BOM for the configuration,the BOM for the entire assembly appears, not just for what is inthe configuration only. So I have to go through the BOM contentsand toggle the visibility so they do not appear on the sheet andedit the quantity so it reflects the amount of screws, for example,that appear in that stage of the assembly. This is getting quitetime consuming considering I do at least 10 sheets perassembly.

Am I missing something? Is there a setting I am missing for SW toautomatically do this for me?

Thank you for any help in advance.
