Thanks for your help. I just tested an indirect way to generate a BOM by using command "bomhdl" in the -nographic option. Basically, I created a BOM template file separately to define the properties to be report first. Then invoke the command bomhdl with required parameters such as project name, template file name, and output file name. After being created, the output file is read back and parsed to generate a new BOM file with the desired format. The invocation, reading, and parsing can be done by SKILL programs. It seems working fine. I believe that CAE Views HDL programming will be more powerful, flexible, and having performance. I will possibly look into it if my tested approach cannot meet requirements.
