but if i create a threded hole the default expression type for the created hole is a STRING....

so how can we control that size with relation to lenght..

10-50                M6


51-100              M8

When you create a Threaded Hole feature you will note that one of the expressions created that in linked to that feature will indeed be a 'String' expression and it will be equal to the descriptive name of that thread size.  If you edit that 'String' value alone, replacing it with another legitimate 'String' value equal to the descriptive name of the desired thread size, the threaded hole feature will update to the new size and all of the other expressions linked to that threaded hole feature will automatically update as well.
