BOM Madness

I'm baffled. Completely. I'm sure there is an easy answer, but it seems to me like this whole BOM business could be a smidge more intuitive. :-)

I don't like the default "Part Number" that SW provides in the BOM. So, I went and opened every part and went to "Properties" and added a "Part Number" property. One hour later, I actually added the BOM to the drawing. I promptly hid the "Part Number" column with then inserted a new column (thinking I could simply make the column heading "Part No" per the custom properties), but alas....the software added the default "Part Number" column heading...and didn't give me an option to put my own column heading in the BOM.

I'm under the gun with a deadline, and this issue has me at a dead stop.....I'm ready to throw my computer out the window.

Any suggestions and/or guidance is greatly appreciated.
