  • BOM Template Problem

    Hello, I've been experiencing a problem where I'm unable to use my company Excel BOM template. It is a fairly simple template. When I select the template and try to generate, none of the fields populate. I have verified the parameter names match from the Excel template to my Altium parameters that I configured.

    I then tried to use generic templates, as well as Robert's Template. I can see the fields will populate (by selecting print preview), but when I actually try to generate/export, Altium will not generate a BOM. I get some invalid file that cannot be opened.

    I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

    did you save the template as an .XLT or .XLTX

      Yes file was saved in correct format, thanks for the response.

      Just to update my posting, I solved the issue, there were tiny errors on my original template that were easily overlooked, for example there were some collapsed columns and rows that prevented information from auto-filling.
