Unique ID

This function automatically generates a Unique ID which is the concatenation of all parent part numbers with the part number at a particular line item.  

Example Table - prior to Unique ID

When the function is selected, the form appears, which allows a user to select a source column, which is typically a part number column.  Once selected, the user can click 'OK'.

Unique ID Input Form - Select Column

A message box appears alerting the user that the results will not be unique if the BOM is packed, i.e. when quantities are greater than zero.  

Unique ID - Pop-up message

A column with the 'UID' appears in the first column to the right of the table.  Each successive parent is separated by two colons, e.g. "::"
