Question regarding Excel-based BOM

I am relatively new to Solid Works. Our company uses the Excel-based table to create our assembly bills of material. If I edit the BOM by double-clicking, make changes, close the BOM, and save the drawing, my changes are okay. If I close the drawing, open the associated model to make a non-BOM related change, save the model, then re-open the assembly drawing, all of my edits revert back to the original text, quantities, etc.

Can someone please explain how the Excel based BOM works, and what I can do to eliminate this editing problem? It is getting very frustrating...
