Hole Callout Drill Size

I'm wondering if anyone knows how to get the drill size number to display using the hole callout function for a tapped holed created using the hole wizard. For example, I made a 1/4-20UNC -2B tapped holes to a plate using the wizard, and when I created the drawing it correctly called out the tapped hole size, but gave me a drill diameter of 3/16". Looking in all standard tables for that size tapped hole, I should have been told to use a #7 drill which has a decimal equivalent of 0.201
I know how to get the decimal of 0.201 to display, but I'd like to get it to display the #7 drill size. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreaciated.
