Bills of Material: New Parent Selection

New Parent Selection

New Parent Selection

This window is presented when copying a BoM. The user must enter a new Parent part number. After entering a part the system checks that the new Parent is pre-defined in the Parts master, that its Lowest level number is not equal to or greater than the Maximum BoM level set in the Company Details, and that it has no existing BoM. The system will then duplicate the previously selected bill and, where necessary, adjust all relevant parts lowest level numbers. This process can take time and must not be interrupted.

Warning WARNING: You can’t copy the structure to a parent that has any active orders on file.
