Equations in QTY colum of Solidworks BOM not retained when saved

I have a problem whereby I am inserting an equation into the QTY column of a Solidworks 2008 BOM to display an error message if the qty is zero (for virtual components defined by a custom qty custom property). This works great until I try to save the BOM as a template. Once I try to reuse the template on a new drawing, the equation is gone. This does not happen on any other column, except for thr QTy column.

Anyone know if this is by design or a bug?

Thanks,

Oliver
