Why does BOM not change with configurations?

I have an assembly with 9 different configurations. We would like a different drawing for each configuration so after creating the first drawing I think "great, I'll save some time by copying basic drawing for each configuration." This is working well as I just change to the appropriate configuration for each drawing and then reattach the broken dimensions and do a little cleanup in each view. However for some reason the BOM does not update with the configurations. With each drawing I am having to  delete the BOM and reinsert to have the correct one. Not a big deal but a time waste. I don't recall having to do this in the past. Am I wrong, I thought the BOM would update with the configuration changing. This could create errors if someone made the change and didn't think to check.

 

Thanks
