I just installed the SP6 on our Protel 99SE software a week ago... We use
the "size of hole" string as the code for the hole location on our drill
drawings. Up until now we have had no problems with this... Today I
discovered a bug. I was getting ready to send out a board and looked at the
drill table or Hole Chart if you will, and noticed that the codes for the
holes were scrambled.. They look like they are right on the board but the
chart is messed up. Here's what I got...

See the problem..?  The codes in the Hole Chart do not match the hole sizes
they are supposed to represent.
Could someone at PROTEL get a fix for this out as soon as possible! 
I will have to manually fix this or go back to SP5 until it's fixed...
