Bill of Materials too long for border


New member
Anyone have an idea how to split a BOM that is too long for the title border. I tried rotating it but SW 2006 won't let me. I could create two BOM's and organize everything identical in both then turn off the upper half in one and the lower half in the other but this is tedious. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Split tables
Split tables into multiple sections. Select to allow the table to split.

Table height before splitting. Specify a value for the height.

Split direction for new sections. Select Left or Right from the list.

If the BOM exceeds the height you specify, the table splits and continues in another column to the Left or Right.
