How to automate mass updates to boms in dynamics gp in 10 steps

Manually updating a large number of BOMs is not only time consuming and inefficient, but can lead to errors and inaccuracies. Within Dynamics GP, there is a way to update one part number to another across hundreds of BOMs quickly and accurately. You can set up this update in ten steps. Keep in mind these steps must be done correctly and in order to produce the expected results.

1.) Navigate to: Tools, Utilities, Manufacturing, BOM Mass Updates

2.) Choose your options and then Mark All

BOM Mass Updates

3.) Gather the data from the table behind the scrolling window. The ratio is old times 1.33333

    • select PPN_I as , OLDITMNM as , CPN_I as , QUANTITY_I as,ROUND(QUANTITY_I*1.33333,5) as from BMMU0001 order by PPN_I

Data

4.) Use Excel to format the new quantity into macro language ready cells

Macro Language Ready Cells

5.) Use Word to mail merge these results into a macro

    • Record a macro that starts on line 10 and enters the quantity then tabs through all the fields to stop on the quantity field
    • Replace the quantity with the data from the ready column
  TypeTo line 10 scrollwin bomMassUpdatesScroll field '(L) l_Quantity' , '«ready»'
  MoveTo line 10 scrollwin bomMassUpdatesScroll field 'U Of M' 
  TransLinePrepare scrollwin bomMassUpdatesScroll

  MoveTo line 10 scrollwin bomMassUpdatesScroll field 'Revision Level' 
  MoveTo line 10 scrollwin bomMassUpdatesScroll field '(L) l_Quantity'

6.) Type the first 9 values into the BOM Mass Updates window

    • The repeatable macro section will start on line 10. These first few entries before the macro will play are best suited for manual entry

7.) Play the macro through to the end

8.) Print the preview status report and send to the engineering team for review

9.) Upon approval, Process the BOM Mass Updates window

10.) Print the status report and send to the engineering team
