Change Material in Design Tables

Good Day to All,

This is going to sound like a bone-head question, but...

Does anyone know how to globally change the material definition of a part that is built by a design table?

For example, I have a pipe elbow that has different configurations (sizes) driven by a design table. Currently we save each different material as a separate part file...WPB-234 is one file, A-105 is another, etc. If I need to build a new part, say a 316SS, currently I have to toggle through each configuration to change the material, extremely tedious. For built features I can apply the changes to specific configs or globally if I like, it seems that I should have the same functionality for material definitions as well, I just can't seem to find it! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

Rhett
