Breaking 2 parts into 3 parts but only listing 2 parts in BOM

I've come across an odd situation that I'm not sure what to do. I have an assembly that uses two, 15 pin electrical headers that need to be broken in three smaller parts for the assembly. I made configurations for 4,8 & 11 pins in the 15 pin part. I placed those three parts in the assembly, and the BOM shows three separate parts, as it should. I would like the BOM to show QTY 2 of the 15 pin part. I could exclude two from the BOM and text-in the QTY, but that's "cheating". I could change the grouping in the BOM properties, but then my screws will get combined because they're all different configurations in a "screw file". Any clues how I can group some parts, and not group others?
