i have a design thats got some hierarchical blocks. the schemaric is complete and i now need to generate a BOM. i select "use occurances" and off it goes. For whatever reason, each component is on its own line. Note that i DONT have that option selected in the BOM menu.
if i try to generate the BOM using instances, it groups components as it should, but it gives me hierarchical errors as expected. i've also tested this on a different "flat" design and using instances bom is generated correctly.
i cant submit a bom with 1200 line items. someone please help.
using orcad ver 16.5 S022
figured it out. had an ID field in the property string that is uneque for each component. works now.
