Parent page: ActiveBOM Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:


Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command enables you to import supply chain rankings defined in an existing ActiveBOM document (created in any version of Altium NEXUS), into the ActiveBOM document currently open as the active document.

For a high-level look at working with the ActiveBOM, see BOM Management with ActiveBOM.

Access

This command is accessed from the ActiveBOM Editor by choosing the Tools » Import Ranks command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, a standard Open dialog will appear. Use this dialog to browse to the required ActiveBOM document (*.BomDoc). This can be an ActiveBOM document that was created in any version of Altium NEXUS.

The chosen (previous ActiveBOM document) will be compared against the current ActiveBOM document, and supply chain rankings imported for BOM Items whose DesignItemIDs match.

Versions of Altium NEXUS prior to 18.0 used a different implementation of ActiveBOM, and a different approach to supply chain rankings. If importing from an ActiveBOM document that was created in Altium NEXUS 17.1 or earlier, the mapping of rankings - from old world to new - is as follows:

  • 1 star from the old ActiveBOM document becomes 3 custom stars in the current ActiveBOM document.
  • 2 stars from the old ActiveBOM document becomes 4 custom stars in the current ActiveBOM document.
  • 3 stars from the old ActiveBOM document becomes 5 custom stars in the current ActiveBOM document.

Tips

  1. If an older design project (pre Altium NEXUS 18.0) is opened in a later version of the software, and that project has an ActiveBOM document defined for it, then this import ranks process is automatically applied when opening that existing ActiveBOM document.
