Is there a way to create an assembly BOM on Sheet 1 then detail individual sub-assemblies on subsequent sheets which include a BOM that references the part numbers from the BOM on Sheet 1?

I've got a large assembly in which there are several sub-assemblies all of which are using common parts in differing configurations and interact with each other. This is displayed as a type of GA on Sheet 1.   The Sub assemblies are then detailed on subsequent sheets. So as not to introduce too much manual editing of the BOM, I'd like to create an off page BOM on Sheet 1 and reference all the part numbers on the sub-assembly BOMs to it so there's no Part No duplication.


Is this possible?


I had thought all I'd have to do would be to link the sub assy to the Bill of Materials1 and everything would fall into place but the subsequent BOM Item Nos start at 1.

I know it's possible to change the start number on the sub assembly BOMs but I don't want to introduce the manual edit fro obvious reasons.


Many thanks,
