When dissolving sub-assemblies in BOM on drawing, components combine with same-named components in other assemblies

Hello everyone...so basically, in my BOM in my drawing, I have several sub-assemblies I wish to dissolve. It turns out that 2 different sub-assemblies in the BOM both contain the same item, and when I dissolve one sub-assembly, that particular item will automatically associate with the other sub-assembly and combine with the same-named item (so in the latter sub-assembly, the quantity now reads "2" instead of "1"). I do not want this to happen, and I don't have the option to clear "Combine Identical Components" when I right-click on the item in question. The pop-up window does not show a checkmark next to that option.

 

Anybody know to get around this? Or is there a setting that will prevent it from happening?

 

Thanks,

Mike
