Under "Basic Units" change the "Decimals" setting to whatever level you want (ie. ".123" or ".12345") and the Fractions column should clear. that will change your BOM to show decimals. You'll have to override any measurements you want to show as fractions elswhere in the drwaing.
This is a tricky one Daniel. Bill of materials has given us many gray hairs. Anyway. Each cell in the bill of materials reverences to information contained in your part properties.
Are you using a customized bill of materials template?
