Is it possible to group BOM items by certain properties?

I'm creating a BOM that has multiple cables (sub-assemblies).  Some of the cables are the same but take different routes, thus they are different assemblies and have different names, but I've given them the same company part number called "Number" along with "Description" and "MFG #". 

My question is: is it possible to have the BOM group all cables together that have the same "Number" property so that there's only one row with the appropriate quantity?

Note:

- I know that this is a Standard Cable that I'm making, but the "Standard Cable" routing tool is not currently capable of pushing appropriate information to the BOM.

- I can't just make another "configuration" in the assembly file because it's possible that hundreds of configurations will result from one cable as I insert it multiple times in multiple assemblies.

 

Here's an example:
