Pasting from Excel into Named BOM

For years we've used an external application for BOMs.  We implemented PDM Professional about a year ago and have finally made the decision to use Named BOMs instead of our old system.  I'm trying to work through the best way to add non-modeled parts.  For example, I've created a named BOM and need to add a couple dozen non-modeled parts (ethernet cables, labels, etc) and "right click->insert->row below" then typing in the various fields is painfully slow.  Is there a faster method, perhaps letting me type these things in Excel then cut and paste into the named BOM?

 

Or am I approaching it all wrong and there's a better way?  If I have more than a few non-modeled parts is it a better strategy to put them in an Excel file and attach that to the named BOM?
