I think that is fine. Have a look here: https://youtu.be/b8arWWrMGXA?t=218

PS: Unless the new orcad has some new options to save only parts(?)

Thank you.

I have found another way for this problem in orcad 17.4
and i use it.

i follow these steps

1-Create default components with all parameters / properties required for the BOM (like description , supplier part number, manufacturer,..SCHChechecked ,....) with initial default values ('0' for numbers,'-' for text ,....)

2-save it as _DEF_.

before creating any new component

3-right click on _DEF_ and copy.
4-rename _DEF_ to _DEF_1
5-right click on lib and paste.

now you have two components _DEF_ and _DEF_1 .

6-rename the _DEF_1 to new component and continue.

i think it is a good alternative way . with all default initial properties/parameters are set to empty or '0' or '-'.,the possibility of entering previous values ​​is also eliminated.
