This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 for all countries and all language locales.
Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 makes only one bill of materials (BOM) active, and an explosion inquiry works only for this BOM. Specifically, this problem occurs when you create a sales order and then assign a BOM number to the sales order line in Product Builder in Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0. When you run the Explosion inquiries in the Sales Order dialog box, only one BOM is set to Active at the same time. Therefore, the explosion inquiry works only for the active BOM. However, you expect the explosion inquiry to work for all the BOMs.
