The Production planning -> BOMs -> Substitute a part in all BOMs allows bulk editing many Bills of Materials.
This page allows adding, removing or replacing a part in selected bills of materials.
For editing bills of materials in bulk:
- For replacing an old part with a new one, select both parts.
- For removing a part, select the old part only.
- For adding a part, select the new part only.
How to select which Bills of materials to update?
- Changes apply to bills filtered on the previous page, the Production planning -> BOMs page.
- if some filters have been set to find particular bills of materials, only these bill are updated.
- if no filters have been set, all bills of materials are updated.
- When searching, you can use _ as any single symbol (wildcard) and % as multiple symbols.
Please note that it may be not possible to undo changes. Because of that, it is advised to backup your database in Settings -> Database maintenance.
