Wall Type Indicator NCS 20 - Migrate to AC 25 and Up

Has anyone had any success migrating older projects to AC25 and newer that use the label called Wall Type Indicator NCS20? Even if I manually load this label and its associated macros, the file's wall tags show up as missing.

Yes. What do you mean "the file's wall tags show up as missing."?

Does the Library Manager show it as missing?

Does it show up in the Label Settings > Type and Preview?

damn. clicked the wrong button.

 

Yes to both questions David. I see a black dot, but I can select them and then assign the NCS label to them. This invariably results in rework as the labels have leader lines and has to be done floor by floor.
