We use SW BOM's to create Manuals for our machines.  When Icallout a right hand part for a right hand machine, I list a lefthand part for a left hand machine.  In the BOM, I can groupthem to show the same item number, but I would like to omit one ofthe item numbers in the BOM.  Kind of like this:

Item   PartNumber    Description                     Qty.
1        08-001234R    PARTRH                          1
08-001234L    PART LH                          1
2        08-001235        DIFFERENTPART          1

Can this be done from inside Solidworks BOM??

Thanks
