Description field in BOM?


#1

A BOM can be export from pcbnew. So far so good. I need some more information in the BOM.
Is there a way to export the description field (descr xyz) of a part in the BOM as a separate column ?

I think not, but you can see all the available information (without hacking Kicad source) in the intermediate .xml file that gets generated when making BOMs and Netlists. It contains value, footprint, datasheet, and user defined fields for each part.
