idiot moment (BOM)

I have oodles of drawings where I'm showing all levels of the BOM.  Yesterday, I stumbled across an option to hide the assemblies, to only show parts.  I think it was a drop down choice.


I just can't seem to find it today.  Does anyone know where that setting is?


Thanks in advance.

When initially placing the parts list, there is a dropdown menu for "BOM View."  I believe what you are looking for is the "Parts Only" option from this menu.


The likely reason you're not finding it is that you can't change it after the fact.  You only see this option when initially creating the parts list.
