Here are questions and answers from my BOM Report Formats webcast.

Question 1:
Are the only formats available for an output a text file or an html? If so, is there any point of adding a CSV or Excel output? Many shops I work with want an excel BOM output of some sort. I know of ways to import into Excel as well; what delimiter is used with the output text file?

Answer 1:
Yes, the only formats available for viewing a BOM in the Assembly Design module are:

  • BOM HTML output format
  • BOM Text output format

If you create a BOM table in the Drawing module, there is a Save Table as CSV option. That output could be converted to an Excel document.
