Can you override the quantity if the top level file is checked out?
No, it can not be modified.
Actually, that is not the quantity of components, it is the order that the xref file inserted.
Here, I recommend you to have a try of DWG Connector, a tool that developed by Shanghai SimTech Co., Ltd, a partner of SolidWorks.
It extracts BOM and Title Block info from DWG files and build the structure of the whole product. All those things are done automatically during files checked in to EPDM. In-place parts are dealt with virtual components.
And there are multiple language pack, including English, Deutsch, Japanese, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional).
Here are some videos about this tool but in Chinese at this moment. Go to: http://i.youku.com/simvrtech
