Part number in BOM not displaying 'Document Name' like it should

Under the Configuration Properties for a part, you can choose the "Part number displayed when used in bill of materials" as Document Name, Configuration Name, or User Specified Name.  I am able to change it to Configuration Name and User Specified Name and see it update in the BOM, but when I change it to Document Name (which is what I want), it does not update in the BOM, even though the configuration now shows <configuration name>[Document Name], where whatever is in the [ ] should appear in the BOM.

 

Any ideas on how to get my document name to show up in the BOM?  By default, SW uses the document name and it does show up in the BOM, but once it is changed I cannot get it to change back.

 

Thanks!
