showing fractions in bom using report symbols

I am getting so frustrated. i have gotten the bom to spit out a value from doing... (part level)

HEIGHT=D2:1016

LENGTH=D24:197

DES_L=LENGTH

DES_H=HEIGHT

where des_h and des_l are parameters at the part level

and then in my bom i have &asm.mbr.DES_L&rpt.rel.X&asm.mbr.DES_L

 

that shows as 201.356 x 201.356

 

BUT i need them to show as feet and inchs like. PL 1/4 x 16'-9 3/8 X 16'-9 3/8

 

can anyone please help?

 

thank you for your time,

Joe G

You might have to format that into a text string with some math.

hi Joe,

See the picture Antonius has posted in the following thread:

You will need a resulting string type parameter to put into your BOM, which is kind of hard to get with no RTOS function around.

Tom, you should put that pic into your gallery.

What we really need is a comprehensive list of all the functions in the relations dialog.

I can't believe how useless the help files are in this regard.

I'll put that image in my album. Thanks for the reminder.

im still not sure how that can yeild feet and inches. 16'-9 5/8 is what i would like it to show

Unless you change the entire part to show feet and inches, you have to "fake" the system. You have to convert the real number value to a string representing feet and inches.

Is it preferable to change the default values in your part/assembly to feet-inches?

I added a document to show "how" but it is quite involved. It was a good challenge, however.
