Item Number on BOM excel export

Is there a way to force Catia to show the item number on a BOM that is exported from the assembly to excel?

No matter what I do I cannot find how to make the item number display when I export the BOM

Thanks

According to the online Help document, it's a 3 step process:

First, open the assembly, reorder the tree as desired, and Generate Numbers to give each component a number.

Then Analyze + Bill of Material and click the Define Format button on the bottom. Move the Number property from the Hidden list to the Displayed List.

Finally, use the Save As button to convert the Bill of Material to Excel format.

Here's the Help document with all the instructions: http://catiadoc.free.fr/online/cfyugpst_C2/cfyugpst0100.htm
