Does anyone know if someone has already created or modified the open save macro to do an update on a BOM within a DFT file? Right now all it does it updates the views, but it will not update the BOM. We have several dfts that I need to update the description of some HDWR that is currently displayed in the BOM and I'd like to automate this process. Any help is appreciated!

Take a look at EdgePublisher
It wil find all associated draft and checks if the drawings are up to date, if not he will update the models, than the drawings incl. the partslists.
And it will do more.. f.i. create pdf, 3D pfd, dwg, dxf, save as flat, stp, iges, whatever in one go... unite a assy.. etc. etc.. etc.

I may have spoken too soon, i just looked at his web page and it appears he updated it in august this year. Try sending him an email as stated here. https://edgepublisher.com/downloads/
Well I tried to install the latest version and it doesn't even finish installing, it just hangs and crashes out...
[EDIT] The modified project does not update the log file writing part, so it won't write anything in the log files about the BoMs.
That looks like it will do exactly as I need. I have one problem...what do I need to do to get it to open? The ZIP file that you provided does not include the opensave.exe file. I tried copying "Bin" folder and contents from the C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST9\Custom\OpenSave location, but when I dbl click on it, it still opens the old version. What am I doing wrong.
