Parts list items A,B,C rather than 1,2,3?

I have a client who needs their drawing bubbles and associated parts list to be alphabetical (A, B, C rather than 1, 2, 3). It doesn't look like this functionality is available out of the box, but is there a workaround?

 

Solid Edge ST8.

 

Many thanks.

Manually enter it... yea its gona suck.

We ended up changing our system to work within the constraints as we used a system where the top level object had a number and the subcomponents had letters, such as..

1

   1a

   1b

   1c

2

   2a

   2b

3

 

Our company had used this system since the 1920's... it was a bit of an uphill battle to get them to change but I wasn't about to manually type in 1000+ item numbers on each job.
