BOM Grouping

I frequently need to list several parts with the same part number but with different discriptions and part formulas.  Inventor keeps grouping them even when I turn the group fuction off.  I just want inventor to list them by 'item' and I will sort them as required but I can't find a way to make this work.  Is it possible to do this?

Yes, you can disable the Bom Roll Up function. Here's a link to a skill builder on BOM in general:


Pg15 explains what causes it to occur which is important to understand. 


This WikiHelp link explains how to enable/disable Row Merge:
