Balloons and BOM - asterix SW2015

I've searched the forums but the questions go back to 2011. I am using SW 2015 SP 2.1 and the BOM and ballooning is working inconsistently.


Here is my drawing set up.

I have my assembly. The assembly has 3 configurations - Original, Option 7 and Option 9


My first drawing view is that of the whole assembly using configuration Option 7 and ballooning that picks up all the components as listed in the BOM

I have created from it a BOM, Indented, Flat Numbering, Detailed Cut List, Configuration Selected is Option 7

Parts configuration groups is Display as one item number and Display configurations of the same part as separate items.


The first image is a view of the whole assembly Option 7. Roof plates numbers match the BOM in the second image.

The problem begins when I make a drawing view using just the roof assembly


BOM-Modded Roof.jpg

As you can see from the above image the modified roof has stars where the Item #s should be 193 and 194


BOM-Default Roof.jpg

However if I right click in this view and select default Roof, the item numbers appear even though as you can see the roof plates 193 & 194 don't match the description.


What is going on?
