Try using BHATCH instead of HATCH. That's short for boundry hatch. You simply pick the outside boundries and it will hatch around the things out in the middle (like bolt holes). Be sure to pick a hatch pattern, and set the scale for the hatch too. If you are trying to hatch a small object with too large a pattern, it won't show up. Conversely, a large object hatched with a small pattern will look like a solid fill.

BTW-been using Autocad since release 9. That was back in the DOS days (you remember DOS...dinosaur operating system..)
