Can Items in the BOM be Hyperlinked to the appropriate draft file??

[ Edited ]

 

 

is there a way to directly access the drafts file from items listed in the BOM?

each item in the BOM has Draft. 

 

 

I need to individually access my draft files, of all of the items in my BOM

 

is there a way to hyperlink all of the BOM items to their respective draft file?  (location on the server)

 

i manually did this by making a link to the drawing file i needed, in the design binder.

This isnt fast or very practical. is there is a way to populate the design binder with the draft files of all of items listed in the BOM?  

(The draft files are always located in the same folder location, as the the part or assemply file that is listed in the BOM)

 

 

thanks for your time in advance

I would suggest you download Spy for Solid Edge from here http://solidedgespy.codeplex.com/

It is invaluable when trying to find what you can get and do from the API.

Screenshot below shows where you need to be to find the models linked to the parts list.

Having got those you would need to do a where used on each to find the draft files.
