Try Design Tables with derived configurations.

I'm looking for a way to automatically generate configurations using a spreadsheet. My current top level assembly has 4 or 5 sub-assembly's with 9 or 10 configurations each. I want to be able to create a configuration for each possible combination of sub-assemblies. For instance:
Top Level Configuration 1: Sub-assembly 1, configuration 1; Sub-assembly 2, configuration 1...
Configuration 2: SA 1, C 2; SA 2, C 1...
Configuration 3: SA 1, C 3; SA 2, C 1...
Configuration 4: SA 1, C 1; SA 2, C 2...
I looked into DriveWorks, however, it's out of my budget and it sounds like it creates a new file for every combination, not a configuration.
Besides that, when DriveWorks (and Tacton too) generates a new project, it renames all affected assembly items. It creates an additional headache: all equations and external links must be moved from SW models into DriveWorks equation area.
