Pro/Weld with family tables

I have started adding welds to my weldments with Pro/Weld so we can calculate weld lengths. Now I have an assembly with some instances with varying widths of a product. I have a skip (intermediate) weld along the width of two components with 6 welds. I would like to vary the welds to 7 and 8 on the next two widths. Is there a way to add this to the family table for each instance?

Thanks in advance.

SUMMARY

Many thanks to Dan McCaherty for testing this out. It appears that this is not possible on WF4, but it is on WF5.

I ended up using a work around by creating an analysis feature to measure the part length. I then set up a parameter for number of welds, then made a feature relation to drive the weld pitch based off the measured distance and the number of welds parameter. A little more work, but effective.

Weld_pitch = (distance:FID_Part_length - weld_length) / (Num_weld - 1)
