Adding architectural in line items

Good morning everyone. I am a long-time Inventor user, looking to expand my CAD knowledge. So far, SW seems to be much more intuitive and easier to use than Inventor. My company has recently acquired a license for SW and I've been messing with it for a few days. What I'm currently trying to do is recreate our typical BoM view. My current hang up is getting sketch dimensions from a part to appear in the BoM in an architectural format for our piece-part drawings.


Let's say our dimension is 10'-6". By changing the dimension style at the part level, I can get the value in the BoM to appear as 126.00 or 10.5. Note that neither of those numbers have the unit string attached. By using the equation editor I have figured out how to add the units as a text string, but not how to get feet AND inches.


For our manufacturing facilities, placing the units in the column header is not an option.


What other options can I try? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
