Does anyone know a way to link Item # in BOM to Item # in text?

Hello All,


This is my first time on the Forum, so I apologize in advance if my question is really dumb, but the unasked question never gets answered so here goes:


At my company, we have build instructions on the first sheet of a drawing. We refer to the components as, Item 5 (10x10x5 Capacitor), for example.

It would be cool if we could link the Item# of the instructions (or text) to the same item # on the BOM, and have it update if we change numbers, or delete an item from the BOM. Does anyone know how to do this, or if it can be done? If my explanation is not clear, I can certainly rephrase it and provide more examples.

Thank you for the help.
