    Default BOM Cheat? Qty Value Override

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    As a rule, in our BOM the QTY (quantity) equals how many of a part/assembly are
    included/inserted in an assembly.
    We've recently come across a couple situations where we need to
    override that number for a particular item.

    As an example, we have Screw X and we want the quantity to equal 100.
    Is there a way to get a manually entered QTY to show in the BOM
    for only one specific item when the BOM has many lines?
    For all the other items I want the QTY to equal the total in the assembly.

    It's like I need only 1 line in my BOM to read a Custom Property for this one item.

    If this do-able?
    Is there a different methodology for accomplishing this?

    I really want to avoid inserting 100 instances of this one screw in my top assembly, even if it's a pattern. (If possible)

    I know about manually typing in the cell to override that way...
    Looking for a "different" option..
