Customizing the BOM Revision Component Sublist

BOM revision component sublist customization lets you define and display component level information specific to your business workflows. You can add custom columns, change column order, update column labels, and hide column fields.

To customize a sublist, go to Customization > List, Records, & Fields > Other Sublist Fields. After you create a custom field, it appears on the BOM Revision Components subtab.


The BOM Revision component sublist is not automatically added to the work order.

To add custom columns to a work order:

  1. Go to Customization > Lists, Records, & Fields > Transaction Line Fields > New.

  2. Complete the Transaction Line Field form:

    1. Enter a descriptive Label name.

    2. ID value is used when scripting to instances of the transaction type.

      Enter a name that begins with custcol and then an underscore. If you do not enter a value, the system generates one. For example, custolcoliqity_vendor_control_no.

    3. Select an Owner. Only owners can edit this field.

    4. Enter a Description of this field. For example, capture the vendor’s lot/serial number during item receipt.

    5. Select the Type of field you want to create.

    6. The Store Value box is checked by default so that the entered information is stored in the custom field. This enables you to look at data that is stored elsewhere.

      Clear this box to not store changes in the custom field. If you do not store the value, changes are discarded. You can make the field read-only.

    7. Optionally, check the Use Encrypted Format box to encrypt stored values for this field in the database (values still appear in the UI).

      After you save this field, you cannot change this option.

    8. Optionally, check the Inactive box. Inactive custom fields do not appear on any forms or in global searches.

  3. On the Applies To subtab, check the Work Order box.

  4. On the Sourcing & Filtering subtab, in the Source List, select BOM Revision Component.

  5. In the Source From list, select the Bill of Materials Revision custom field.

  6. Click Save.

    After a BOM revision is selected on a work order, NetSuite automatically retrieves a list of components related to the BOM revision. This ensures that custom field information is included in the work order. For more information, see Creating Custom Transaction Line Fields.
