Controling diameter in dynamic block

OK, I have been off playing in the Inventor world for awhile and now that I am back in the 2D world, I find my memory fails me. I am trying to create a dynamic block for terminal boxes. Some of these boxes are round so I need to control the diameter from the lookup table. Just how do I do that? Placing a diameter constraint parameter gets me the various diameters I need but I cannot get those into the lookup table. I know I am missing something but just cannot remember what it is.

Help?!?!

Assuming twice as big as you want but the concept is here.

Then, (using Charles' example) just change the display value for the lookup to twice what the distance is.

 

[edit] I believe Charles' file is 2013.  You can use DWG True View to convert it down. [/edit]
