BOM in SW 2007 SP0 not showing configuration description

I use design tables to define all of my properties for drawings including part numbers and description. I recently had a computer crash and had to reinstall SW. Now, for some reason, when I insert a BOM, whether it be std bom or Excel bom, the bom does not show the description listed in the design table UNTIL I open the part, open the design table and close it back down.

It seems that I only have to do this once. The next time a BOM calls for that part it usually loads fine.

Now, most of my parts are very old and had been created with the description field being filled out in the properties tab but I never used to have this problem.

Am I missing something somewhere? I have not had to do a large assy but I am truly afraid of what I will find!
