File Extension Help

I am trying to send a model to a vendor to have holes drilled, reemed, and tapped. The vendor said they can work directly from a step file. When I sent the step file of the part to the vendor they said they could not tell which holes were tapped and which were simply drilled. I used the hole wizard to create all the holes and tapped holes in the model. So all the information required for drilling and tapping holes is stored in the solidworks model. Is there settings I need to change to include annotations in the step file or is there a different file format I need to use to convey this information?
