Math operations with new table BOM

You'll probably have to use the Excel BOM that's still available in 2004 after lots of complaints during Beta.

This question is regarding the new table based BOM's in SolidWorks 2004. I
feel like I'm missing some very basic functionality that I can't believe is
not there. All I want to do is in the table BOM on each row take the
quantity of parts times the weight of the part. I would then create another
column for example called total weight (for that row) and put that value in.
I then at the bottom want to sum up the total weight of the assembly.
I understand of course how to do that with the old excel based BOM method.
I also understand that I can go into the mass properties of the assembly and
check the total weight. I thought that simple math operations would be
included in the new table method
Thanks Much
