As the message states, naming the solid body is the key here.  You can assign a name by right-clicking on the solid body (specifically the solid body, and not a feature) and adding it here in the "General" tab:




Once you've done that, the body will be available for inclusion in the part family spreadsheet when you choose Material from the Available Columns option menu:




...and if you set up your spreadsheet something like this:





Then the part family children will take on the appropriate new density based on the identified material:




Hope that helps!
