SW DM API - How to get cutlist for a specific configuration?

My company is using the Solidworks document manager API to get a list of cut list items for a specified Solidworks file.

 

Some of our files have different cut list items depending on the configuration.  My issue is I can't seem to find a way to tell which configuration the cut list items belong to.

 

To my knowledge the only way to get the cut list is using the ISwDMDocument10::GetCutListItems2 method.  This gets me a list of the entire cutlist for that document, but I can't seem to find a way to tell which cut list items belong to which configuration.

 

The only idea I can think of is changing the active configuration.  It looks like quantities on the cutlist seems to change depending on the document's active configuration.  Is there a way to change the active configuration?

 

If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.
