Adding "description" to a BOM table

Adding "description" to a BOM table

This is probably old hat for the group. I am trying to add a description line for the components listed in my BOM. I have tried to add the description in the repeat region from the other selections, but I cannot seem to find the description. Am I going to need to add this as a User Defined parameter?

This works nicely and is very simple.

One can use a Note object with more functionality if desired instead.

yes,
select tools/parameter
click on the plus sign
add a string parameter named "description" and enter the part description
add "&asm.mbr.descrtiption" to your repeat region cell.
