· Duplicates – Allows multiple rows with the same data to exist. This is why we see several rows that look identical to each other. Unfortunately, Duplicates will not show a quantity in the quantity column (which is why we don’t see any right now).
· No Duplicates – Does not allow duplicate rows to exist in the table. For any two or more rows that are the same, the repeat region will calculate the total number of these rows and report that quantity in the second column.
· No Dup/Level – Does not allow duplicate rows to exist for each level of the assembly. This option only works if you have your level reporting set to Recursive.
· Recursive – Shows all levels of the assembly, including the assembly itself. Sub-assemblies will show all of their components on the table as well.
· Flat – Only reports the items at the top level of the current assembly.
The next option, Min Repeats, allows you to specify the minimum number of repetitious rows allowed in the repeat region. The default is 1, which will allow for blank lines to appear if data is missing from certain components. I recommend keeping this setting at 1 unless you have an advanced table function you are trying to work with that requires the number to be set to something else.
· Start Index – Allows you to specify the number that the repeat region starts at when indexing rows.
· No Start Idx – Always starts the numbering at “1”.
· Bln By Part – When you suppress or replace a component to which a BOM balloon is attached, this command reattaches the balloon to another placement of the same part. If no other copy of the part exists in the assembly, then the BOM balloon disappears from the drawing.
· Bln By Comp – Specifies that simple BOM balloons reattach themselves to whatever component replaced the one that originally owned the BOM balloon.
