How do I add a different wire gage to the selection of wire types?

I am using the Harness feature in ST3 to create wiring routes but I need 2-gage wire and the largest in the selection of wire is 10-gage.  I can change the diameter and description of the wire but would have to change it every time I placed a wire.  How can I add the type of wire I want to use to the library of wires available?  I can't find an option to add it and it is going to be really time consuming to change it every single time.

In case anyone else has the same problem this was the solution I got from an associate at Daystom Technologies:

 

 

"The contents for the pull down menu for the default wire definitions in the Wire Harness Design module in Solid Edge ST3 are stored in the file ...\Program Files\Solid Edge ST3\SEConductors.txt. This file can be edited manually with a word processor, and the formats for the wire definitions are clearly marked in this file."
