What controls the output to the cutlist properties of a sheetmetal part

Can anyone tell me whether there is a way to controll what is added to the cutlist properties of a sheetmetal body?(see image attached)

 

Here is why I need to do that:

 

I have set up a part template that automaticaly adds the weight of each cutlist item and the name of the property was assigned to "Weight"

If I add a sheetmetal body to the part then the Weight is still calculated but now it is called "Mass"

 

This means that in the weldment cutlist I insert on the drawing I have to add two columns one refering to "Weight" and one refering to "Mass" in order to show the weight for all the parts.

 

I know I can change the property that the stuctural members use to Mass as well, but that is not a solution as I have hunders of thousands of parts that already uses "Weight" as the property name.

 

There must be a text file or something that controls what is added to properties of the sheetmetal item. but I cannot seem to locate it?????
