How to explode a multi-level BOM


I've created a BOM in CS01 that the two sons are BOMs themselves. I gave the father a multi-level explosion item category.

When I give the sons the item category that they need in order to explode, I get the following message when creating a Sales Order:

"You have tried to carry out a structure explosion within an exploded structure, but this is not possible.

For example, the system finds one component and one item category within an exploded BOM that leads to another BOM explosion in document processing. This is not possible because you can only explode a multi- level BOM and the explosion can only start with a document item that has not been generated by the previous explosion.

Similar problems occur when combining BoM explosion and product selection."

When I change the item category of the sons to a non-explode item category, I don't get an error message, but the sons don't explode.

Anybody knows how to make the multi-level BOM explode to all its depth?
