Updating Volume in Design table

I have a part I created with 6 part configurations. I want to be able to change the diameter & thickness and have if calculate and update the volume of the part as I change those two values.

I want to use this volume in a design table to later perform some calculations.

I used the value in the "Custom Properties / Configuration specific" tab for the volume and applied to each of the configs.

The problem is that as I changed through the configs and/or change my two parameters the volume will not update automatically in the design table for that configuration.

I have to manually go to the "Properties / Config specific" tab, select the approprate config in the "Apply To" tab, close this, then reopen the Design Table to get the value for the volume to update.

Even if there is only one config, it still will not update.

I have entered the "SW-volume@@config@---.sldprt" string in each cell.

Is there a way to get this to work automatically?
