Weldment

I am creating an assembly, and I just converted it over to the weldment environment where I will be placing 8 welds on a ring. Before I can place the welds on there, it asks me to specify the weld bead material. I set it at Welded Mild Steel. I want to eventually save out the entire assembly and replace the components with stainless steel parts. My question is can I can now go back and change the welded material to "stainless steel"?? How can you get material to show up on the welded symbol?

To change Weld Material simply right click on the Welds Folder in the Assembly Tree --> iProperties-->Physical Tab and then under the Material heading use the Pull Down Tab to select material.
