I want to see a temporary column in my BOM telling me what materials are selected from the library.

I know I know, there are problems with using this to populate a BOM with material.  But in my case, I am only using it as a temoporary error check, so I know all of the components have materials assigned so I can trust my mass calculation.  When I finally release the drawing, I will hide that column in the BOM. 


I know if I enter it as an equation, $PRP:"Material"  it will return the value for the custom material property.  But that is not what I want.  I want to know what material was selected in the feature tree material library, for each part. 


Anybody know a way to achieve this, even if they think it is a bad idea?
