Linking between drawings in BOM

I'm want to know if there is a way to have links between drawings in the BOM for assemblies. I have BOMs listing the parts, but I want to have the drawing number written in the BOM. The drawing number should indicate the latest revision version of the part. If the part is updated the drawing number changes, I would like this change to update autiomatically in the BOMs.


I have another question not related to BOM, but I'll ask it here anyway as I think it is quite simple. The get the wheight of a part can be designed by the material properties, but to get the wheight automatically on the drawing (using the standard template) do I have to modify the properties of the part and add the mass property? If I do this on all my parts, will the assembly drawing show this automatically or do I have to add a property specifically to the assembly?


I've tried to find a free tutorial for the usage of properties but haven't found any...
