Costing template won't allow profile selection

I am trying to create a costing profile to help create more consistent quotes. I am editing within the Machining Costing Template Editor. For some reason whenever I am making a new entry under "Structural Member" for "Materials", I can't select a profile for the entry. I can set a value in all the cells except for profile. When I click on any cell within the "profile" column it doesn't have any options within the drop down menu for the cell. Exporting and Importing yields a syntax error as well, for what i assume is any value listed in the "profile" column. 


I have tried exporting and importing a template. 


I have launched the editor separately through Solidworks and Windows. 


I have tried save a separate Template with a different name


Can anyone please help me. I have not seen too much on this subject.
