I've only had time to test this in SW06 but of SW08 is anything like it, the best you can do is to display dual for the hole sizes.
No matter what I tried, I could not get the x/y locations to update.
Of course you can always manually add a column, select each cell one by one, enter an equation as so; B2*25.4. Hell, if you have 38 holes, you only have 76 manual entries.
How's that for a SolidWorkAround!
I combine same tags, so I don't have the x/y columns (just 8 hole sizes).
I'm trying to add a formula to a new "METRIC SIZE" column, but it gives me a 0 as the result. I'll consult one of our Excel gurus in the morning if I can't figure it out shortly.
Are there very many other dimensions? If not, try changing the drawing's document property units to metric. Then override units on all the dimensions and change them back to inches. If it's a big drawing this would be too much trouble, but on a small one it shouldn't be a big deal.
Thanks, most of my dims are ordinate and selecting is slightly tricky, but it looks like that will work.
Somehow I didn't see that option on the Other tab (collapsed at the top like it is.).
