I just tossed a drawing with a SWBOM over the wall this afternoon and got it tossed back at me.
The SWBOM numbering was all screwed up. I attached balloons to each part in the assembly (relatively simple assy.) and then counted the balloon numbers; they didn't add up to the number of a particular part in the BOM. After saving and reloading the drawing the BOM was even more screwed up.
I switched to an excel based BOM and everything worked as it should including the balloon numbers.
Has anyone else seen this? SW2004 SP5.0
