Weldment Cutlist "Description" changing

A few of us at our shop are experiencing a few different outcomes for the "description" row under the wedlment cutlist.  This only has to do with structural members that are pulled from file profiles.  We are manually changing the "Value/Text Expression" colum to read something different than what the file name is.  Example, solidworks inputs TS2.5x2.5x0.25 and we are changing it to read 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1/4" W/T x 22.25" LG.  Now when 2 of us open this file the value stays what we inputted, but when the third person opens this file the value changes back to the "profile name".  This part was not created by the persons computer who is changing the value.

 

Has anyone seen this, is it just a bug or is there a path somewhere that was changed?

 

Myself and the other correct computer are on sp2.1, the faulty computer is on sp1.0, i haven't had a chance to upgrade because they have been on a job.  All 3 of us are running windows 7 64 bit.  So is it a service pack issue or something else.

 

Thanks
