User specified name / BOM

I have a assembly, it is a wiring harness that has three derived configurations. Each of those has the same User Specified Name that is the Description that I want to populate in the BOM.


The harness is in a larger assembly document where the derived configurations are used (a marker for a balloon call out, a graphic for an exploded view, etc.) but only one harness is needed for the final assembly.


In the BOM the harness is populating twice even with the derived configurations all having the same User Specified Name. I cannot use Exclude From BOM because I need the part active to be able to attach Balloons to it through out the larger assembly document.


I have used User Specified Name before with separate configurations and it has worked, multiple configurations in an assembly but on one entry in the BOM.


Why is it not working with the derived configurations?
