What is the easiest method to export a BOM reports to use in Arbortext IsoDraw?
IsoDraw accepts xml files for BOM creation in specific format, and I would like to export the necessary xml file from Windchill.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your reply. The structure of XML files varies. The output format of Structure tab and Input format of IsoDraw are different.
From the structure tab, I get an XML report like this:
IsoDraw accepts XML reports like this:
<partsList xmlns="http://www.ptc.com/SIS/2010" version="1.0">
So I need to convert XML files that can cause mistakes.
Do you know any best practices for this issue. Can I import XML files -more- directly?
I want to share what I can do for converting BOM reports to use in IsoDraw.
I appreciate who helps us to go further for a more stable solution.
I created an executable JAR file. In this JAR I run a class that uses Saxon library methods.
I write an xslt file to make translations and saved it on file system. I also saved the Windchill Structure report XML file to my file system.
In the code, I process the input file by the xslt file with Saxon library methods.
I put the output file to my filesystem, then I import converted XML file into IsoDraw.
That's what I did so far.
It is good to share. Thanks for reading.
