Unable to Convert BID ITEMS into Work Order

Estimates can be uploaded into DASH with BID ITEM line items. This line items will display correctly when the line items are viewed from the Add/View/Edit Estimated> View Line Items. However when the estimate is converted into a work order, BID ITEMS do not convert into a work order. Since BID ITEMS are able to to be parsed as line items, the system should be able to convert an estimate into a work order and have bid items display within the work order.
