Subassembly drawing using final assembly BOM

We have a final assembly of steel box, like a shipping container but more to it. It is made up of a base assembly, side frame assembly, and roof assembly.

Now in the final assembly model I have generated a BOM for the whole thing for purchasing purposes.

However the way we do our drawings, we have one sheet per drawing, so the base assembly will have a single drawing on a single sheet. I can create a BOM selecting the a view and that lists just what is in the base assembly. Fine but if cross referenced against the purchasing BOM it won't make much sense.

 

So I would like to be able to load in the purchasing BOM into any of the drawing we make and hide the rows that aren't needed. I've tried several ways but can't seem to get it to work.
