Proper way to add substitute items in parts list on drawing?

Sorry if this has been posted somewhere else.  But I have some hardware in my parts list drawings that has a substitute for each other.  So you can use one of either item in the list.  Per the ASME guidelines, those two parts share the same item number in the parts list.  So my question is there any way to tell those two parts they are substitute from each other and they come into the parts list sharing that same item number.  Right now i'm manually changing that item number in the parts list. But if you try to re-order those parts it's a nightmare cause it's still treating that other item as a seperate entity.

What do you mean "reorder is nightmare"?

If you've set the same itemref for both primary and alternative component then they would go one after other after reorder by Itemref...

Please describe your problem ia a bit more clear way.
