I would like to export a multi-level BOM from Vault Professional 2012 to Excel, preferably by means of an easy (and fool-proof) procedure. I found that copy/paste fuctionality works after selecting all items in the BOM. However, the structure of the subassemblies/parts gets lost when pasting into Excel.
With the dedicated "Export" fuction the multi-level structure gets lost as well in the *.xls file. Exporting to html appeared to be a solution, but then I discovered that e.g. descriptions and supplier numbers are cropped when they exceed a certain length.
I know the "Export Items" fuctionality where you can add a BOM level indicator to each item, like e.g. 1.3.6. This information would be useful in the Excel document, but I prefer a less elaborate and more WYSIWYG approach than the "Export Items" procedure provides. Besides, the "Export Items" fuction is limited to released items only and sometimes I need to export the BOM of work-in-progress items as well.
Any help to find an easy way to export a complete multi-level BOM is most appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately there is not a good solution beyond export as html. I have logged this with the development team and product design.
Be sure to check out the Vault Help Wiki!
Has there been any development on this topic?
Exporting a multi-level BOM which shows all associative drawings and attachments is something that would be very useful to me.
