Moreover, when using items with production type 'Formula', the 'Multiple' is to be defined on the formula itself.

The EXCEL export option is available when on the BOM designer. It has three options. The third option makes sense.

 The user expects that the third option "Export BOM LINES" would result in an EXCEL with all the BOM lines (multi level).

Nothing exports.

We sugges...

In the current implementation the OPEN IN EXCEL options in the BOM Designer are not filtering on the selected view / tree and are opening the entities without any filters, what typically may end in a timeout.

Thank you for your feedback. Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future. 

Note that the property defaulting from product category (Retail category hierarchy) has been extended in the fall release 2017, so there are now better ways to avoid incomplete configurations once a product is assigned to a Retail category. When creating products from the product by category forms, the category is mandatory to select.
