Design Table autofill

We have used an assembly model for many years now that uses an assembly level design table to control the supression or unsuppression of parts by logic that looks at a specified thickness dimension in the design table. If the dimension is blank the part is suppressed. When we updated to Solidworks 2013 it auto-filled all columns in the design tables, causing havoc with our library of existing parts. Now if we open a model the update feature auto fills the table causing previously supressed parts to become unsupressed.


Does anyone know any way to disable this feature or can anyone suggest a work aroud for this problem? We are manufacturers of industrial machinery and this legacy data is very important to us as our customers order spare and replacement parts.
