I just tried this and it worked.
- Make a hole feature.
- Start a design table.
- With the cursor in row 2 of the design table, double click on the hole geometry to bring up the revolve sketch. The top row should add something like "$STATE@#10-24 Tapped Hole2"
- Double-click on the thread depth. The top row should have something like "Thread Depth@Sketch4".
- Delete the column for state.
- Configure the thread depth.
I have that set up just as you said, plus the drilled depth of the hole is also configured, and it's not working correctly only for the tap annotation. My annotation depths from the design table are overridden by the hole wizard defaults. I have not yet tried it in SWX 2013. Is that what you are running?
Edit: I've just tested this converting the part to 2013, with identical results. Is this a bug for shaded thread annotations?
I didn't carry it through to the end. It was a little tougher than I described. The order of operations seems to matter a lot; and I wonder if this will melt down in a SolidWorksian fashion.
1. Add the hole wizard feature
2. Add the design table (auto create) with at least 2 configurations
3. Close the design table
4. Configure the hw-size within the hole wizard
5. Open design table. When the auto-create window comes up, add hw-size to the design table
6. Add hole-depth to the design table
7. Verify that worked
8. Add more configurations.
Also have to drag columns down in excel or copy them to get the data validation drop down in the rows you add.
I've looked at your parts, and I don't thing you are seeing the same thing I am. I'm worried about the shaded cosmetic thread component of the hole wizard, not the additional physical counterbore representing the thread depth. I believe the error is with the annotation, and that it works just fine with physical geometry. Unfortunately, our standards are to use the shaded thread annotation to show all tapped holes. Could you try doing the same thing without a near side countersink and with cosmetic thread instead of remove thread under the options? This is what I'm trying for and seeing the inconsistency.

Yep. I see it. I can get the cosmetic thread depth into the table, but I can't get it to evaluate. I even tried adding an equation. When I right click on the cosmetic thread and configure feature, it shows one depth all the way down, but it is not evaluating to that depth. I think this is a limitation.
