How to set default BOM for sheet when using multiple BOMs in a drawing?

brett_suttonbrett_sutton Member Posts: 33 ✭✭
I have a drawing with multiple sheets and each sheet has its own BOM (a standard Assembly BOM).

The problem is that when I add parts to a sheet the new part references the first BOM (rather than the BOM that is on the sheet).

The result is that when I add a callout, the part no. shows up as '---' due to the part not being in the first bom.

I can update the parts BOM reference to the correct BOM but this is tedious.

Is there some why of setting a sheet's 'default BOM' referencesso that as I insert new Parts they reference the correct BOM.

Or is there some other best practice that I'm missing?
