To explode a BOM from a purchase order line, use the following procedure:

  1. Click Accounts payable > Common > Purchase orders > All purchase orders. Double click a purchase order.

  2. Select the purchase order line you want to explode.

  3. Click Purchase order line on the Purchase order line FastTab > Explode > BOM lines and the Explode BOM form appears.

  4. Select the items from the Bill of material (BOM) you want transferred to the purchase order line. Alternatively, you can choose Select all and all the BOM lines will be selected.

  5. Click OK.

    The quantity specified for the original purchase order line is set to zero. Consequently, the BOM item is not included in item picking. Instead the component items of the BOM are multiplied by the quantity in the original purchase order header.

Note Note

If the purchase order that you want to explode a BOM line for is associated with a purchase agreement, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 will automatically search for matching purchase agreement lines within that purchase agreement. If matching purchase agreement lines are found, relevant information such as price and discount is transferred to the purchase order lines.
