This dialog enables you to configure a Bill of Materials report or a Component Cross Reference report. You can configure the information for the report and export it in various formats.
The Report Manager dialog is accessed in the following ways:
For a Bill of Materials report:
Click Reports » Bill of Materials.
You can also click on the Default Prints tab of the Project Options dialog under Report Outputs, click Bill of Materials then Configure.
For a Component Cross Reference report, click Reports » Component Cross Reference.
Show - check the Show box to add the desired corresponding data to the grid area.
The All Columns section is sourced from the properties of all components on the document (or the source documents if a project is open) for which the report is being generated.
Show - Check the Show box to add the desired corresponding data to the grid area.
You can also drag and drop the desired information from All Columns into the Grouped Columns.
The displayed data is defined by the checked boxes in the Grouped Columns andAll Columns regions. Click the down arrow next to each heading to filter the information
in the grid by the desired listed items.
Include Not Fitted Components - check this option to include components that are not fitted.
Include Parameters From PCB - check this option to include parameters from the PCB (e.g., Layer). If it is checked, the parameters will be shown in the All Columns region.
Include Parameters From Vault - if the component is from the Vault, select this option to include parameters. If it is checked, the parameters will be shown in the All Columns region.
Include Parameters From Database - include (make available) parameters from an external database that is linked (through a DbLink/DbLib/SVNDbLib file) to components in the design. When this option is checked, the database
parameters for the matched component records, and that are not part of the Altium Designer components, are presented in the All Columns region.
Include in Component Variations - also include these database parameter value overrides in components that are varied as part of a design variant.
Supplier data is only available when generating a report for the project. It is not available when generating a report for a PCB document.
Changing Supplier Currency - use the drop-down to select the desired currency.
Production Quantity - use the arrows to select the quantity that needs to be ordered to produce the given product quantity.
Round up Supplier Order Qty to cheaper price break - the Supplier Order Quantity is used to determine the Supplier Unit Price that applies. Suppliers typically offer various quantity pricing levels depending on how many
units of an item you purchase. To have Altium Designer round up the Supplier Order Quantity to take advantage of the next (reduced) pricing level, enable this option.
Use cached pricing data in parameters if offline - enable this option when working offline to use the last cached pricing data.
File Format - select a format from the drop-down list. The following file formats are supported:
CSV (Comma Delimited) (*.csv)
Microsoft Excel Worksheet (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlt, *.xltx)
Portable Document Format (*.pdf)
Tab Delimited Text (*.txt)
Web Page (*.htm, *.html)
XML Spreadsheet (*.xml)
Add to Project - check to have the generated report added to the project after it is created.
Open Exported - check to open the relevant software application, e.g., Microsoft Excel, once the exported file has been saved.
Template - enter the desired Excel template file by either typing the file name into the text box, using the drop-down and selecting a template file (*.xlt), or browsing for the template file by clicking ... .
Relative Path to Template File - check this option to show the relative path to the template file.
Menu - click to access a menu of options including the following:

Report - click to open the Report Preview dialog from where you can print the report.
Column Best Fit - click to adjust the column widths to fit the current view.
