Renaming assembly parts to match BOM table number

I am looking to find out if there is a way to rename/ renumber parts in an assembly as quick as possible. I have made an assembly of about 25 parts and made a BOM table. In building the assembly I had a naming system of "AssemblyName-xx" It was built up with the larger components being lower numbers then more detailed bits and pieces having higher numbers. However in developing the assembly and parts I have had to make a few changes by removing/ adding parts as I went along, so this system is kind of out of whack. It may go from Assembly-01 through to Assembly-8 then jump to Assembly-11, for example.

So I'm wondering if there is a way to renumber these parts to match their placement on the BOM table? as I would ideally like BOM item #1 to be Assembly-01 and so on.


Thank you.
