Linear pattern of holes

My document is 

The problem starts with the sketch "Mounting Holes".  If I replicate the pattern #L/#P times, I get six sets of holes.  But then I have to individually extrude(remove) the holes one at a time.  It would make more sense if I could select the document replicate pattern, select the two extruded holes, and I would be done.  But it won't let me select the holes!

This rail is part of a generic family of rails.  The one-letter names for the dimensions in the configuration are based on the (non-machine-readable) CAD drawings I found online for these rails, which is why they do not seem particularly mnemonic.

Here's the screenshot I am basing the documents on.

So how do I replicate a pattern of remove extrusions so I get the right number of holes based on #L?  The number of holes in the pattern is #L/#P.  While #N and #P do not appear in the table, I have measured them, but they are part of the configuration.  This is an SBR-C12 rail model, which is the only one I am using at the moment.
