Can SolidWorks Add Up The Length Instead Of The Quantity?

In our assemblies we frequently use parts like wire and shrink tubing that we specify in length on the BOM. Currently we break the link and type in the length, but I was wondering if there was a way to add up all the lengths of a particular part number, and represent it as a total length. Example: If I use 3 pieces of shrink tube 1 inch long, SolidWorks will say I've used 3 pieces in the BOM. Can I have it say 3 inches?
