Saving BOM table for future use

Hi there, can anyone tell me how I can save a BOM that I have updated in Annotator? There are a bunch of default layouts in our Annotator, but once I edit them they do not save when I close Creo and reopen.  So does anyone know how I can save the BOM out (I assume as a mi file) and where I can save it in the custom settings?

Once you create the tables and save them, you then can load them into annotaiton via the am_customize file.

 

Below is an example of our settings.

;;****Assy BOMS****

(docu-load-bom-head-layout :ui-name "O-I ASSY BOM"
				   :file (concatenate 'string OICUSTDIR "/bom_sketches/OI-ASSY-BOM-HEADER.MI"))

(docu-load-bom-comp-layout :ui-name "O-I ASSY BOM"
				   :file (concatenate 'string OICUSTDIR "/bom_sketches/OI-ASSY-BOM-COMPONENT.MI"))

(docu-load-bom-head-layout :ui-name "OI_BEG ASSY BOM"
				   :file (concatenate 'string OICUSTDIR "/bom_sketches/OI_BEG-ASSY-BOM-HEADER.MI"))

(docu-load-bom-comp-layout :ui-name "OI_BEG ASSY BOM"
				   :file (concatenate 'string OICUSTDIR "/bom_sketches/OI_BEG-ASSY-BOM-COMPONENT.MI"))
				   

				   
;;****O-I BOM Balloons****
