Splitting BOM Items

I would like to split items in a BOM to show up as separate items. Specifically, I have a structure that has flanges that bolt it together, and I would like the fasteners for each flange to show up as separate items.


This is so the fasteners on each flange can get their own assembly code (for assembling parts, all the fasteners on that flange get the same assembly code so they are brought to the same area of the structure) in our database of parts.


Right what we do is manually edit the quantity column and add extra returns so that there are multiple quantities (number of flanges) for a single item. This is rather clumsy and manual. I would like something that would be more automatic.


I'm running SolidWorks 2014.


Thank you,
