Redline Replace/Edit of Item Number Only via Import Wizard
For change orders, I want to replace or edit (verbage changes on source I found) the item number of a line item on an affected item’s BOM. What this looks like is a pair of redlines where only the attributes that change between item numbers get redlined. Namely, quantity and reference designators remain unchanged.
I’m able to accomplish this two separate ways:
- double-clicking the item number of the line item prompts user input. On saving a valid input the redlines appear as I’d want them
- Using the bulk change replace functionality results in the same behavior.
This seems like consistent and stable behavior and I’d really like to leverage it with the import/export wizard, but every experiment I’ve run, every preference I’ve changed hasn’t given me this behavior. Best I can accomplish are two disjointed lines, one where the old item number is completely remove and one where the new one is completely added.
This is largely a cosmetic ambition, but I figured if anyone out there knew the answer I’d ask.
