Q - question

Set the iProperty Standard for Inventor BOMs.

A - answer If you need to set the "Standard" for your custom parts in BOM, or add your own "standard" part to the Inventor Content Center, you may need to set or change its property "Standard" (Norm). While the standard iProperty dialog doesn't offer changing of this property, you can perform the change using the following simple VBA macro:
Sub SetStandard()  
  Dim oProp As Inventor.Property  
  Set oProp = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument.PropertySets _  
  oProp.Value = InputBox("New value for Standard", , oProp.Value)  
End Sub  

Copy this macro (in the part environment) to the VBA code of the current document/part (Tools > Options > VBA Editor > DocumentProject > ThisDocument > View > Code (F7)) and run it with the arrow or with the F5 key.

Then include the iProperty "Standard" in you BOM (parts list).
