linear pattern count in BOM not correct

I am now having to account for bolts and nuts in my assemblies, I am using linear patterns since this will allow me to place them quickly and only have the mates that are involved with the first instance to deal with the mate limit issue. My problem is that when I check the BOM it says there is only one bolt and nut.... is there anyway to have the BOM automatically account for these instances that occur with the linear pattern? I have looked at dissolving the pattern which leaves the bolts in place and corrects the BOM but now all these objects have to be mated. Is there anyway besides dissolving the pattern to have the BOM reflect the correct number?
