Automatically filling a table with the configuration name and description

I can't believe this is that difficult, but my SW knowledge in terms of drawings and tables is the weakest area.  I've googled, but I don't really know what to search for so the search is coming up kind of empty.


what I want to do seems pretty straight forward since the items I want to list in my table already exist in the BOM table that SW automatically creates.


on tabulated assembly drawings, I can easily get my BOM with a column for each configuration listing all my parts and quantities.  the BOM table SW creates even has the headings for Part Number and Description.


what I generally do is create a second table with only two headings.  Part Number and Description.  the Part number is the Part number for the assembly configuration and the Description is the description unique to that configuration.  each of these exist in my Assembly drawing under configuration properties.


how do I get a table to auto fill with just these items?


thanks in advance.
