Configuration Properties

How can you get the Configuration Property of a Design Table "use in bill of materials" checked automatically? I create a configuration of a part and set the configuration name (Which is the Part Number) and the Description (Which is the BOM & Title Block Info). Check the BOM use box and everything is good and than I create a table. My problem is once I create a design table the description check box needs to be checked indivdually. After using the using the excel information below I still have to check the box! WHY? What populates the custom properties for "Descripton" on the configuartion specific properties tab?

 

I'm making a part in which the file name would be 810000.sldprt (Description) EXTRUSION, ALUM, 1.50" SQ, XX.XX" LG.

 

The configuration names would be 810000-15.50 and 810000-120.125 and 81000-45.312

 

The configuration description are made thru excel using a formula as in;    =MID($B$3,1,30) &(E4)&MID($H$10,1,30) with a column heading of $DESCRIPTION

 

B3=EXTRUSION, ALUM, 1.50" SQ., (TEXT STRING)

E4=LENGTH#BOSS-EXTRUDE1 (WHICH IS THE LENGTH OF THE PART)

H10="LG (A TEXT STRING)

 

The configuration names are made with; =MID($I$15,1,6)&($H$18)&MID(E4,1,6)

 

I15=310277 (TEXT STRING)

H18= - (TEXT STRING)

E4=LENGTH#BOSS-EXTRUDE1 (WHICH IS THE LENGTH OF THE PART)
