Parts Lists Requiring Update Report
You can use the Parts Lists Requiring Update report to list all parts lists in a structure that are affected by a change to their source BOM. You can view the changes that have been made to the sBOM and select how to manage those changes in each parts list.
For more information, see Updating Parts Lists after Changes to Source.
To generate the report, use the Tools > Reports > Parts Lists Requiring Update toolbar choice in the Structure tab of a structure’s information page.

Attributes for the parts list in the report, allowing you to select the correct ones to work on
You can also follow links to a parts list and its associated sBOM from here.
Note the column for a parts list’s Status attribute. If it displays the Checked out icon, you cannot update the parts list from this dialog. You must check in the parts list before proceeding.
For more information about status icons, see Object Status.
You can collapse this table if required.
Be aware of these implementation notes when updating parts lists from the report:
You cannot carry out any other update actions while an Update Parts List action invoked from the report is still running. A progress bar and confirmation dialog will keep you informed of progress.
If you close the report after invoking an Update Parts List action, the update will continue until complete.
