Equation Feature Suppression and External References Question

I have a part that uses an equation to suppress a hole pattern when the part gets sufficiently short.  Taken by itself, the part works just fine in this regard.


However, when I place the part into an assembly and externally reference it to the assembly sketch using relations, the equation does not function on the assembly level.  In order for the equation to take hold, I have to "Edit Component" on the part, enter the Equations bank, and click "OK".  Is there any way around this?


Please keep in mind that I cannot place an equation on the assembly level, because the part will be suppressed in certain circumstances, which will blow up the equation.
