Generating a BOM from Layout, in normal "one line per part type" format

Hello group -

I am still using Pads 9.4 schematic and layout.

So forgive me if maybe newer versions take care of this issue.

I have created an Assembly Variant in layout. So now I need to generate a BOM for the CM, in the format that they can use for purchasing parts. From schematic, I generate a BOM that looks like this:


ItemQtyReferenceDescriptionManufacturerMfr Part Number
271A1Antenna, Chip, 2.4-2.483GHzPulseW3008

131C4Cap, 1uF, 10%, 25V, X5R, 1206KemetC1206C105K3PAC



How can I generate a similar BOM from within layout? I have tried using the Basic Script Editor, but I can't get it to show one part type per line (grouping the reference designators).


Any ideas?
