I am using flanges with different material (on the same configuration) to get the same part number. how it is possible to assign different material for that part number ?
Please elaborate on your question.
Give us more detail on what you have and what you want to get.
As it stands it's rather difficult to judge what it is that you are asking.
I am using a flange from the routing library, and from the configuration, I assign a part number to be shown in my BOM table. and the problem now is that I have many flanges with the same configuration but with different material so I am not able to change the part number nor the material.
the only way is to save them as external file and do the required changes but this will be very difficult if I need to modify my flange since I have to search and modify every flange? I hope it is obvious enough. thanks

If you give the different flanges a different component reference you should then be able to make those viewable in a drawing.
The other way is to make copies of the flange and in the designtable make a colomn to indicate the material
The third way is to make a massive designtable where each size of the flange is mentioned as often as there are different materials it can be in. Not advisable at all.
There are only 4 or 5 flange files in routing, each with many configurations. Material is applied at the configuration level. If you want two materials then you must make those changes/additions to the design table.
Alternatively, if it is a small volume of an odd material then after the spool is made make the change after the spool has been generated. This will not affect your part number. This may be problematic if you have an instance of each material in one spool/assembly.
