Importing a Parasolid with an ellipse feature fails

Has anyone had this problem??  I exported a file from Creo as a Parasolid and tried importing it into Solidworks. If there is an ellipse features, it will not allow that Parasolid to import.  I get a "Data Invalid" error.  I thought it was because of where it was place in relation to the other features in my model.  However, I created a single feature of just an ellipse in a new part.  Same thing happens.  Don't know how to get around this.


The problem originated because the original file didn't export properly as a STP file without changing the accuracy of the part slightly.  I was told by our VAR that Solidworks is based of the same kernel platform as a Parasolid so exporting it that way would have been preferred.
