Couple different methods:

1. SQL Approach
2. VBA based approach.

  I would start by taking a look at this:

Expanding a Hierarchical Data Structure
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS_Access/A_19-BOM-parts-list-expansion.html

 which will give you a good start.   let me know if you have any questions on the article.

And keep in mind that this is only one way to structure this, although most solutions fall along these lines; a part master, then a BOM table with each level of the BOM entered individually.

 For example, I have a VBA sample that doesn't use recursion.   Others do BOM editing using a tree view control so you can see the entire structure, etc.

Thanks a lot Jim!  That gets me going nicely with the example of a recursive routine.  I'll be implementing today.

Welcome to EE.  Glad to hear that helped you along.

Given that, assuming you made a mistake in choosing your own comment as the solution for the question (everyone does this at first because it's so easy just to pick the last comment), so I'm going to object to the close.

That will allow things to be closed properly.

Jim.
