My NC drill file from Ultiboard does not load correctly.

NC data typically stores x,y coordinates using the following format: "X24000Y10150"; attributes such as integer & decimal digits are used during import to define the true coordinate value.
For example if the "decimal digits" attribute is set to 4 during import, the resulting true coordinate value would be: 2.4000,1.0150. If the "decimal digits" attribute is set to 3 during import, the resulting true coordinate value would be: 24.000,10.150
In this case of the drill files from Ultiboard, the x,y coordinates were directly stored in the NC drill file as their true coordinate value: "X2.4000Y1.0150" (and not in the standard NC format - as described above). Since there is no need to assign the integer & decimal digits, set both values to zero - see below for step-by-step instructions.
To import these drill files, please perform the following: 1. Goto menu: File | Import | Drill..., and select your drill file. 2. Set options "Integer Digits" and "Decimal Digits" to zero. Note: See attachment for a screen capture. 3. Click Next... and proceed as normal.
Note: You may also update the drill import settings for AutoLoad by performing the following: 1. Goto menu: File | Import | Autoload... 2. Click button "Format Settings...", and select tab "Drill". 3. Set options "Integer Digits" and "Decimal Digits" to zero, and press OK.
