Hi Vickie,

This was a strange set of drills.  If you ever have problems loading a drill with AutoLoad, try skipping the Drill file in AutoLoad.  Then load the drill manually using menu:  File / Import / Drill...  You have more control how the drill is loaded, and can even assign the tool size before import.  Here's step-by-step instructions:

1. AutoLoad your Gerber (un-check Drill).

2. Import Drill separately, using these settings:

3.  Add Tool Hole Size Here. 
Note: Only if Drill is missing the Hole Diameter definition. You can always enter the Tool sizes layer by going to the NC Table. Menu: Setup / NC Table...

Thanks and let me know if that helps.
