BSPT and Thread.xls

Hello,
When I recieved IV5, one of the first things I tried was to create a BSPT
thread tab in Thread.xls. As far as I'm concerned all is well apart from
one minor detail, all Threads features specified as being BSPT will have NPT
annotations in a drawing(*.idw), all thread details will be correct, apart
from the name of the Thread form. If I remember correctly, the BSPT tab was
created by copying the NPT Thread tab and changing the values, the tab name
included.
Can someone tell me where IV is getting the NPT thread name from?

Thanks

Scott

There is a thread.xls doc on:

http://www.cbliss.com/inventor/Materials/Materials.htm

that seems to place the correct notation on hole notes...

Thanks, but I already have the file, it isn't Tapered and I need sizes up to
6"NB.

Ignore the last remark, that twit didn't see the other file. :-)

In the M_Cad file, both BSPP and BSPT are listed, but the BSPT is not
tapered.

Why can I not recreate the NPT tab with BSPT thread information?
