2014 Frame Gen - BOM weights

I have a FrameGen BOM setup as desired and added the column for Mass/lbmass to get the weight.  However on those rows where there are multiples of the Item QTY (2 of this, 3 of that) the Mass shows just the weight of one item rather than the combined weight...which is what I want.  I tried making a custom property call WEIGHT and entering an expression, but in that selection I do have mass but not Item QTY as a selection.  Any ideas?

I may have found the "only way", is in the setup of the PartsList in the IDW and not in the ASM
