Copying BOM Kit Button doesn't copy User fields ? Help.

When I use the copy BOM kit (11.250.03)in Bill Of Materials (11.250.00)it inserts a copy of the KIT I am copying but it does not copy the user fields?  Is there somewhere in the bowels of Bill setup that I have to turn on copy the USER fields values.  We use the user field 1 to add Reference Designators on our prints. But when we copy the existing bill it strips off the user field info and we have to reenter all this info.
