Multiple BOM tables

Hello,

We have a item(pipe, elbow, tee etc), Pipe length, and weld BOMs in our company drawing. Could anyone provide some suggestion as to how I can create three BOMs based on these specs.
I am not sure how to call out the welds yet but I think I can do it using a 0-dimension part. So if i have 10 welds i would have 10 copies of this 0 dimension part - each copy holding weld information in the custom properties. I would then need to specify that this part(s) should only show in the weld BOM.
I am using API to generate the drawing automatically with the Item BOM- i haven't figured out how to create the Pipe Length BOM and the Welding BOM.
Also, is there a way to change the default item numbering from 1,2,3 to A,B,C etc.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
