Inventor BoM doesn't match WTPart structure

We noticed that amended quantities in Inventor BoM don't transfer over to the WTPart structure.

In the example below the qty of M0030387 has been modified in assembly but the WTPart BoM shows the qty of model occurrences (2) instead of the desired qty (13).

Has anyone come across this before?

We've experienced this before.  I expose the 'built from CAD' column in my BOM view and review the Reference designator columns.  Often this leads me to the source of the issue.  Often I've found one part or the other didn't 'build' correctly OR the Owner Relationship wasn't applied.  There are (as you know) many variables.  🙂

Thanks for your reply @JHall, I've added the columns, does it give any indication what's happing in this case?

What I see is that the parts are built from the CAD object and that there are 2 in the assembly.  BUT, what is the symbol at the top?  Has this been checked in?

Yes, it is checked in @JHall 

The little shield symbol means there's a security label on the part, we apply them as default for every part.
