AutoCAD Electrical’s reporting features are extremely flexible giving the user the ability to customise the reports very easily and to add associated fields of information. However when selecting the Reports ribbon tab > Schematic panel > Schematic, you may have noticed that panel only components are not listed in the bill of materials (B.O.M.). The schematic bill of materials does exactly what it says on the tooltip to steal a famous advertising slogan but the panel report gives you all of the part information.
However if you select the option Reports ribbon tab > Panel panel > Reports, you are also able to include all items whether in the schematic or panel drawings.
