Reference dimensions in the iPart table

The question I want to ask is about reference dimensions in iPart.

I can create a sketch and place reference dimensions on it, there's no problem. I can activate any configuration manually and see the reference dimensions adjusted according to configuration, no problem again.
I would like to know — is it possible to automatically populate column of the iPart table with reference dimension value, as it stands for each configuration?
I was able to find some solution for that, but it's not automatic. I can mark reference dimension of export, and add it as a column to the table, but I need to manually activate each configuration to populate the column with measured reference value. Not very good, because there can be very many configurations.

Any ideas as of how to automatically get complete list of reference dimensions values for each configuration of the iPart?

Great question.  Will someone please address this issue.  We are using Inventor 2012 and we are having the same problem with getting a reference dim to populate into the family table.  We need this value for our production drawings.
