I tried to consolidate both metric and English fasteners into one file and can't get that to work. I looked at the text file and the format appears correct. Is it a matter of changing units? You'd think this should work.
We end up with a lot of instances where both types of fasteners get used on a part (that's reality in the US). It's a pain because, as far as I can tell, you can't even switch from one hole file to another while in session.
I have created a new file for uns threads. If you look at the top of the file (the header) you will notice that the table_units is declared. That maybe the problem you are having. also to have the file regognized thread_series in the header must be differant than that which is in any othet *.hol file in the same directory
By the way Thanks to stefanba for you help in pointing me in the right direction.
So how do you edit the text / make changes or additions to these .hol extension files? When you open up the files in an ASCII text editor the text is not organized in neat organized rows and columns. The text in the file is kinda scrambled. Or maybe I'm just using the wrong text editor (I'm using Notepad).
