Reverse gauge table

I am wondering if there is a way to use the gauge tables to find the gauge and use it in a BOM based on the thickness?

I use gauge tables all the time and find them useful but we always put the material thickness in our BOM's for purchasing. I can pull up the thickness property in the BOM but the problem is that when we buy 10 Ga plate we buy it as 10 Ga not 0.1345" so I have to manually type in 10 Ga.

It would be nice to have an automatic relationship that calls up 10 Ga based on the thickness so it takes the human error possiblity out of the equation.

Anyone have a suggestion or solution?
