I dont agree that "99" Alternate is the max? I think you missed to see that alternate BOM field is alpha Numeric so you can have option like A1 to A9, similarily 1A to that..I not good in calculating the numbers through permuation I leave it to the guys to calculate for them selfs.

"999" Is the maximum level allowed to my knowledge...if you need more then you have an OSS notes to extended this field...which is generally not recommended. I had a post in this regard...check

[Maximum level of BOMS|update terminate in change bom;
