BOM table - grouping identical parts

I have an assembly that contains two parts which are physically identical, but they are saved as separate individual part files (metal dowels as shown in the table) and are saved with completely different part file names. What kind of daft person would do such a thing I hear you say? Well, you see, they are both smart components and they carry certain cuts/components that are slightly different from each other. Other than that they are the same in terms of part numbering, description, CAD meta data and so on.


The BOM table however sees them as separate items even tho they are effectively the same thing. How can I group these parts together so that the quantity adds up to 2?
