I have been trying to use 'sum of values' substitution on my mass property when merging.
I enable row merge on part number match in the BOM. As expected I get *varies* in the assembly BOM on filename and mass and whatever else varies. I then go to the parts list and try to use substitution of mass with 'sum of values', but always come up with *varies* no matter what I did.
Finally I found that if I set the 'apply units formatting' to zero (unity), I could get the item to sum. No other precision/ formatting would work other than unity. Problem is items that are less than 0.5 lbs show up as zero, so I am not there yet. Plus I suspect there is a setting somewhere to get the units/formatting to agree before I try to sum which might get me a better precision.....don't know. This has burned enough time so I am looking for insight on why the only way I can get sum of values to work is with the lowest precision unit formatting. And it was a heck of a time just stumbling onto that piece.
Please, if you can shed some light i would appreciate that.
