I tried the Screw Ball part Jamie but same message. Looks like a good model though. Never mind. The pic of your parameters looks good and I should be able to achieve creating the this part file with that so thanks again.
No problem Owen, I just uploaded a new image that shows all the parameters in the IPT file including the ones that came from the spreadsheet. Just curious, I'm also going to upload the IPT file for a thing I just uploaded named "Screwball" and I'm wondering if your version of Inventor can open that? The Screwball part does not use a spreadsheet and I'm wondering if that might be what is jamming up your version.

The threads are based on the ISO standards found here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_metric_screw_thread) with a couple of variations; the tooth pitch isn't restricted to 30 degrees as you can change this in the Excel file, and the tolerance is settable in the spreadsheet as well, so the prints "just work" the first time you print them.
Note that the tolerance setting is subtracted from the nut, and the bolt is printed unaltered.
