Bill of Materials shows unused iparts

So I have an iassembly with iparts in an .iam file and I went to make a shop drawing of this assembly. When I go to do this, I get my parts list showing all versions of the iparts, even the ones that are not used. It will show a 0 in quantity.


This is under the "structured" view and I do not see a "pars" tab, which is what I've read I need to look for.


I've read that I have to be very careful with the way that I create iassemblies and iparts, so if someone could clarify the rules behind these things and if someone could help me figure out how to make a drawing with a BOM that only shows the parts currently in use, I would greatly appreciate this.
