BOM automatically populating Mass, Volume, etc.

I was given a large .iges assembly, so no part properties (i.e., material, density), and just need to give a coworker the mass of all the parts.  I bush leagued the solution by getting the parts list from a BOM in SW, going through each part, taking volume one at a time with "mass properties", and did the math in excel with the density for cold rolled steel.  I have to believe there is an easier way to do this.

 

Q1:  Is there a way to get a BOM from a large assembly that will automatically populate part properties like mass or volume since my SW assembly already has this info?

 

Q2:  Is there a way to assign the same material selection to multiple parts at once?
