For some reason, when an iso is created that contains some existing flanges, the bolts will appear as new in the BOM. Is there a way to correct this?
To change the line number existing, I select the line, right-click the mouse and select "Add to Selection" and then selecting "all connected parts", "Entire Line Number" & "Connected Line Number", but this hasn't seemed to work. The existing bolts still show in the BOM.

What version of P3D are you using? I assume you have all related Service Packs and/or HotFixs added? And in case you haven't yet, for starters you may want to run AUDITPROJECT and PLANTAUDIT.
Press CTRL and select the connector, then you can define the properties of the bolts and gaskets in there also.
For a couple of connectors this is indeed an easy way to change it. But what if you want to change it for like 50 line numbers? That would be a h*ll of a job, or not?
Any suggestions are welcome!
Thanks in advance!
Yes, it would take far too long with as many cases as we have. Attached is a jpeg showing on some lines, we get two different bolt set lengths for the same flange, same thickness, same rating. It puts one side of the valve on one bolt length and another on a different one. I've thought of replacing the "@@@" in the long description of my bolt set in spec editor with the standard value.
You could try doing it in data manager if it's a big line. Or, export to Excel, make the change, and import.
