Multiple configuration BOMs on one page

I'd like to be able to create a few separate BOM tables on one drawing for a few different configurations of an assembly. The configurations of the main assembly only differ in a few component colors and the part numbers for those color changed components, so it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have a separate drawing sheet for them.

 

So, I created one set of drawing views with the item number call outs I needed and made my BOM. I added a header with a few config specific properties and that's ready to rock and roll. The problem is then trying to create a BOM for the other two color configs. If I add another bom and change the configuration in the BOM it'll line up with the drawing views fine, but I can't get it to change the header. The header still matches the first configuration.

 

I could change the headers manually, but I'd really like to automate that since my assemblies already have all the necessary information built into them. Is there a way to get these headers to display the correct configuration details?
