alternate part in parts list


I'm trying to customize a repeat region parts list to display two items with the same find number, one being the preferred one and one being an alternate. See attachment for an example of what I'm trying to do. Normally in Pro/E every item has a unique find (item) number, whether the system sets it or whether you perform a "fix index". I see no way to show two components with the same find (item) number. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

RE: alternate part in parts list

I'm reasonably sure that you can't do that.

One way around it is to add an extra column to your repeat region, and set it as a comment cell. You can then call the column Alternative, and manually add the alternative. With the comment column being part of the repeat region, when Creo/Wildfire re-organizes the repeat region, the comment stays with the part.

RE: alternate part in parts list

Found a solution, involving adding a couple of parameters to the items I want with the same find number, along with some relation statements in the repeat region. It's a little messy, but it will get me through this time. Still looking for a cleaner solution...
