Creating Configured parts of existing files (backlog)

Ok this is a backlog/configuration question. I recently started in a job where they have existed and made drawings for many many years. Now a part of my job is to update everything in to solidworks. This would be a  great place to use configurations because many items are nearly identical just longer or shorter. The question is is there a way to create configurations or anything similar but keep the existing file names they have used for many years? For example you would have  Tube A, Tube B and Tube C. When I try to make a configuration of the three tubes only the original configuration (Tube A) is saved as an individual part file that can be searched etc.

Thank you
