Inventor BOM – Row Merge Bug

Had a strange problem that is now fixed thanks to a suggestion from Greg Healey at Cadpro.

For some strange reason, the Inventor bill of materials editor was merging two rows in the BOM that had different part numbers. The row merge is only supposed to merge rows if they have identical part numbers. I tried typing the part number over itself but it didn’t fix it. Greg suggested I try unmerging the rows, changing one of the part numbers to something completely different, and then remerging. This fixed the issue, so I then just changed the part number back to what it was and problem fixed.

If you have similar issues, it appears you need to completely change the data in a cell to get it to refresh properly.
