How to show page and row number of component in BOM

Hi,

I'm trying to find a way of displaying the page and row number of all components in my schematics in the BOM reports. In the past I've used both AutoCAD and Promise-E and it seems that they both handle this very easily.

 

The company who supplies us with SolidWorks is telling me that the only way to do this is to have the component location be part of the mark (i.e. CR01-04.02). I don't really want this, I'd rather have it stored discretely as part of the component. I also don't want to manually store this value as a user value, because I'd have to update it if I ever move that part.

 

Any ideas out there?
