Skip Item numbers in BOM in a controlled fashion.

The company I work for is trying something new with our item numbering layout. We need to start certain categories of items in the 100 levels and other items in the 200 levels. We have Solidworks 2013 but will shortly be upgrading to 2015 or 2016. The problem is I can't get the BOM to just skip numbers. I figured I could do an easy enough work around by adding 99 rows between each different item category and hiding them.. But I can only figure out how to add one column or row at a time (in this case I would like to add multiple rows at once). Does any one have a solution for this issue? I can't imagine this is the first time someone has run into this.

 

Thank you all,

 

P.S. Changing the increment level in the BOM properties will not help this situation.
