Computed BOM Doesn't Exclude Virtual Parts?

I've noticed that computed BOMs in EPDM 2014 still list virtual parts that have clearly been marked as 'Exclude from BOM' in their assembly.  Regular parts (with their own files) which are marked as 'Exclude from BOM' do not show up in a computed BOM, which is what should happen and what I want.  I can't seem to get the system to stop putting in the virtual files, though.


The EPDM help file states:

"The computed BOM includes internal components, such as drawing parts and virtual parts. Computed BOMs reflect BOM exclusions you make in the SOLIDWORKS assembly and components."


Sounds good, but it's simply not true.  If anyone knows how to make EPDM stop listing virtual parts that have been marked as 'Exclude from BOM' in computed BOMs please share this information with us.
