Automatic updating of BOM

I thought in previous versions that the bom was linked to a config of the assembly.  If you change the assembly config on the drawing the bom would automatically update.


I have created a set of sample files to show what I am talking about.  If you open the drawing file you will notice the config2 is the current configuration of the assembly in the upper right hand corner.  If you change this to config1, the part number will update automatically.  The bom does not change, it was created by clicking on the iso view when it was in config 1 and that is the config it stays keyed into.


While I know that I can click on the bom to force a different config, I don't want to have to do that.  How do you make it stay true to the config of the view it was attached to?


Thanks for your help.
