I use BOMwriter to get structure meta data out of TCEng to a psup file.
I can get attributes from the item revisions in the structure.
But I would like to be able to get attributes from the Items.
So at present I do something like this:
And I get what you would expect:
0, Assy1, 1
1, Assy2, 17
2, Assy3, 5
But I would like to get the owner and group of the Item (not the item revision).
so I tried
But then I get the same output as above, with "[Not Displayable]" where I would expect those two item level attributes to be.
If I try "bl_item_rubbish" in the props line then I get "[Error: bl_item_rubbish]" so there is a diffence in the output when I ask for "bl_item_owning_group" and when asking for something which doesn't exist.
So the questions I have are these:
- is it possible to get item level attributes into the BOMwriter output when using a psup file?
- if so how?
- have I missunderstood something here, and what I'm trying to do is not logical?
I look forward to your help.
Did you try adding these two properties as BOMLine attributes? You could do it using Global Constants editor from BMIDE (Fnd0BOMLineRevConfigProps)
If I use PLMXML as the format, then I can get the attributes that I want with this line:
(I've added line breaks to make it more readable, it was all one line)
From this I have learnt that:
- the attribute name is correct
- BOMwriter has access to the attributes that I want.
Which leaves the possibility that I am missing some bit of understanding about what is happening! (in other words I don't know what I'm doing!!!)
Can anyone help me out with an explanation please?
