I want to be able to have a BOM balloon that has the model name rather than the index number. Can anyone help me with this?

Hi Red !!!

Cant help ya!!!!
. Lesley sent me a tutorial on how to create the BOM table in the drawing.... but its not working
. Everytime i try to create the repeat region it just tells me that it cannot be done
. What version of pro do you use ? Can you send me info on how to create the BOM table within a 2d drawing so that i can create the balloons related ? as i have never used the tables before !

I've got something else for you to try, but I'm still not sure if it's what you're looking for.

Give me a shout when you're in and I'll fax it over to you.

Hey peoples

If you want try this table. All you need to do is insert it into a drawing and it will generate a bill of material has description part number qty and numbers then if you read the totorial on how to create bolloons you can generate parametrically linked bolloons. So if you change in your assembly your bom will be generated.

hope this works good luck
