Override Cut List Quantity for Sheet Metal Part?

I've got sheet metal parts.  They're not weldments.  It's real nice that SW does the Cut-List for them.  I can FINALLY get the flat blank to auto-update on the print by referencing one of the fields in there.

 

But, it also gives me a quantity of material used: 1.  Well, duh, there's one part all right.  But what if I know I get 4 parts from an 80 lb. sheet so the quantity should really be 20.  At least that's what it should be if I want the parent BOM to come out right.

 

So is there some way to manually override the quantity value at the part level?  I imagine I could do it at the parent BOM level, but I'd prefer to do it in the part.

 

Added Note: As I suspected, if I don't get the information in at the part level, I have to edit any BOM directly at it's own level.  I thought maybe, since this is a heavily indented bill, I might be able to edit the information at the next level up and have it wind up in the very top level.  No such luck.
