multiple item specific bill of materials

Hello SolidWorks forum,

 

I'm looking for a way to have multiple item/part specific bill of materials on one drawing as illustrated on the attached image. I'm pretty sure that this is not a standard feature of SolidWorks, but I was hoping to create such a feature through a macro.

 

Currently I am think about tagging all my different item with some sort of ID cutsom property tag, for instance "pump", "motor", "sensor", etc. The macro would then scan the assembly for specific tags and generate a table with only tagged objects.

 

Does anyone know if that would be possible?

 

Ps. since I have never written a macro my self before, can any of you point me in the right direction?
