I have an RPG program which creates a work file of either a single-level or indented BOM (it's selectable from a menu option) for a selected Facility/Part/Method. The CL then uses Ariadne Software's CoolSpools CVTDBFXL command to convert to excel and e:mail to the calling user.

I can provide some examples offline if of interest.

We also have a costed BOM version.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Fully indented bom to excel

Has anyone ever found an easy way to get the fully indented bill of
material to excel? I have tried for years to get someone to write me
something to get the Bom - like BOM300 and costed bom CST300 to excel
for use by everyone from Sales to Mfg. I have downloaded BOM200 and
CST280 - I can get them to pdf. I can get them to excel with a tool
called spoolflex - but cannot get it in a usable format no matter what
mapping I try. I am not a programmer -- I'm in Accounting. I have
also used query to pull in the MBM bill of material table - but then you
manually or macro adding the indent - making sure to follow through
changing the quantities needed based on parents usage. Takes way too
much time to do it manually if doing more than one finished good. We
are LX 8.3.4 but have been trying to find something for several versions
