To perform a BGA repair of a 0402 size component, on a 23" x 18" board, is it necessary to preheat the entire board or only the area where it will be repaired? Thanks!

In general, no.

If you've got the right BGA rework equipment, you should be able to locally heat the part area that you're reworking.

Though, if you're finding defects related to thermal stress, it might not be a bad idea to pre-heat the rest of the PCB.

Cheers, ..rob
