Problem using configs with sub-assemblies

I created an assembly for a cabinet drawer with a config for each drawer height. When I toggle through the configs the drawer changes size as expected. Next I built a cabinet assembly and inserted 6 drawers into it, 2 each of 3 different sizes (configs). My problem is this: When I inserted the 2nd drawer size, it changed the size of the first one. When I inserted the 3rd drawer size, it changed the previous two. All of the drawer sizes are the same-even though the feature tree shows the proper config for each assembly. (See attached.) When I open on of the drawer sub-assemblies, the drawer looks fine. When I close the sub-assembly to revert back to the cabinet, all of the drawer sizes change to the one I just opened.


I relatively new to Solidworks, so I'm guessing I missed something pretty basic. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
