I recently switched to Eagle for my board designs. Because most components I use are not in the predefined libraries, I've made a "Managed Library" myself. When making the BOM list (using a predefined ULP from Eagle), I really miss the manufacturer and supplier part numbers (eg. Farnell or DigiKey numbers). It would be nice if I can add them to my "Managed Library" in such a way that the BOM ULP from Eagle outputs them accordingly in the BOM list.

Can anyone help me out on this?

I added attributes to all my components like so: screenshots of eaglecad library and ulp dialog

Then I use the bom_w_attr_v2.ulp (available on the eaglecad website) to generate a BOM that contains all the part numbers.
