Inside any Standard rule folder, there is an ASCII file named IPRO_BOM.ini. This file is used to manage the automatic generation of PartNumber, Description and Custom data.

The structure of the IPRO_BOM.ini file is very simple:

## ====================================================================================
## * IronPROLibrary Data Manager - *** Fronema Srl *** -
## ====================================================================================
# These TAGS will be replaced by the corresponding parameter:
#  <C> Code of the component ex: M10
#  <L> Length of the component
#  <N> Rule of the component
#  <S> Thickness (when defined in the component parameters)
#  <M> Material
#  <Mc> Material Code
#  <Md> Material Description
#  <X> Latest field of DataFile
# (optional) (optional)

How you can see, the file contains several records. Every record has several fields separated by a ; char.

Every record is related to a component.

In the file there are some tags that will be replaced by a particular parameter during the creation of the component. As example, the tag <L> is replaced by the length of the component, and the tag <M> is replaced by the Material name. Inserting these tags in a string, you can set the schema useful to generate the PartNumber, the Description and every other CustomData.

For the generation of the customized CustomData, it’s used the 5th field of the record. In the previous example, it contains the file name CD_Bolt.dat. This means that in the folder, there is an ASCII file named CD_Bolt.dat. This file contains some record that will be used to automatically create some Customdata. This is the structure of the file:

Rule Code = PN-85/M-82101
Comp Code = <N> <C>x<L>-<M>

How you can see, the structure is very simple. The record is composed by two fields separated by a = char.

The first field is the Title of the Customdata and the second one is the value. Inside the value it’s possible to use all the tags available in the IPRO_BOM.ini

If you want use a graphical interface for edit the BOM rule, look at the Library Data Manager.
