Description randomly showing in BOM

Has anyone ever seen the description not show up in the BOM until you open the part? I thought I was losing my mind, probably am, because my BOM seemed a whole lot more empty than the last time I had it open. About 70% of the descriptions where not showing up. However when I open the model all but a few have descriptions and THEN they show up in the BOM.


I've tried [CNTRL] + B, [CNTRL] + Q, shutting down SW, restarting. Checking into and out of PDM and nada. I really don't feel like opening 30-40 parts just so they show in the BOM. 


I am noticing that it looks like all the parts NOT showing up in the BOM are in loaded light weight in the assembly and all the ones that seem to be appearing in the BOM are not. Could there be something there?
