Filter Skeletons out of BOM


My BOMs are showing the skeleton parts and I'd like to take them out.
How does one do this?

A couple of folks suggested manually filtering by item. This works, but
I was looking for an automated way, in the unlikely event that a
skeleton is added, it will automatically get filtered. A table can be
saved with this filter (I think) and it will then filter skeletons
whenever it is applied to a drawing.

I found it at MCADCentral [1] via Google:

Go to Table -> Repeat Region -> Filters -> [select your table] -> By
Rule -> Add

Then paste the line in the entry field and hit enter:

&asm.mbr.type != SKELETON*

Finally, click 'Update Tables' to refresh the table display.
