When moving a member from a sheet to other using either Drawing Management Tool or AutoCAD cut/paste option upon updating list "BOM" I notice the member piece marks are not in alphabetical order. Pleas see attache drawing & look at 29A member which is at the very bottom of list where it supposed to be at top.

We couldn't reproduce the problem on our computers. With a similar numbering, after moving a main part detail view from a drawing to another and updating the drawing/bom, the number and order is given correctly and the sorting is done accordingly. The details were moved with both Document Manger and cut/paste between drawings.
You mention that after update, the new object goes to the bottom of the list even if its counter letter would place it at the top, but does this incorrect sorting appear when doing a new bom on drawing, or only on updating a previous one ?
Please send us a model and drawings where moving details reproduce the problem in order to investigate it.
