Not using part number in variant manger to index BOM

Hello everyone,


In PADS Pro central library, I have some parts defined like C1206 (for 1206 capacitor) so that I don't have to create a new part in CL for every single 1206 capacitor I added to the  database. However, this gave me problem when I was trying to create BOM using the Variant Manager. As shown below, the VM is indexed by part number, and it is treating C1/C2/C3 as the exactly same parts though they have different capacitance. As a result, C1/C2/C3 shows on the same row in the BOM report. Is there a way to use our company part number, which is unique, to index this list?
