Default Importing chord information

I have a problem importing chord information. I've searched the forum and the documentation but am still in the dark, so any help would be much appreciated.

I use both Band-in-a-Box (BiaB) and Notation Composer (NC). NC is far superior in its transcription capabilities, but I think BiaB does a better job recognizing chords. So I have tried the following: I open a solo piano midi file containing no chord information in BiaB, which automatically displays chords. Then I save the resulting song as a standard midi file using the BiaB "Make a standard midi file" command, with the "Write harmony to midi file" and all other options checked. (My understanding is that BiaB then adds the chord information to the file.)

I open the resulting midi file in NC, and choose "Display chord Names." Nothing shows up.

What am I doing wrong?
