I've 3 boards each with it's own schematic but with a lot of common components. I want to generate an unique BOM for all this boards to know quantity of each piece I need and make a single order BOM.

For example: I can extract a single BOM with run bom.ulp

But now I want to merge this BOMs in a single file with quantities of a common single piece sum togheder.

There is a method in EAGLE or Excel to do this? I want avoid to manually do this becouse of risk to make errors in count or add pieces.

  • \$\begingroup\$ What about copying the content of each board to a new empty board and generating the BOM for it? The schematics have to be closed. And, it's not very comfortable, but works. \$\endgroup\$ – sweber Jun 15 '15 at 14:04

File > Import > Eagle drawing > select the schematics that you want to import

Each schematic will be a new page (you should see them on the left menu numbered as 1,2,3) then click on

File > Export > BOM 

Then select values and CSV file type (shown below). CSV is an universal file format that you can open with Excell or Open Office (or a text editor).

enter image description here

If you use Excell, then you can use =SUM() command to get the number of components.
