How to create an exclusive Bom based on specific configuration of drawing?   

 

I have a model which has many components to it and I need to create a build instruction drawing.

So I am creating configurations of this assembly based on how the builder should go about including the specific fasteners and all that. 

 

So I was able to create the first step easily and include the BOM just for that step. Then I would make a separate configuration that would describe another step but when I create a BOM for this second step the BOMs are intertwined from the first drawing page and the balloons are derived from the first page and makes it all messy.

 

I hope I am making sense. Is there a way to just simply create exclusive boms that are only related to the parts that are in the specific configurations I am basing the drawing on?

 

thanks for any help!
