Importing Assemblies that share parts

I have multiple assemblies that were created using Solid Edge that i would like to bring into solidworks and store them in out vault.  I have experimented with various ways of doing this (.step vs. native) and found something that seems to work for us.  The problem is that a lot of these assemblies share parts so the first model imports and checks in no problem.  When I attempt to bring in anything else I get an error stating filename is not unique (the shared parts).  Is there a quick and easy way of reassigning these duplicate parts with the ones that are already in the vault?
