Tim, I apologize for the disparaging posts that some made related to
your original message. Sometimes when the first response to a message is
negative, subsequent replies follow a similar vein. At least *you* were
able to make a civil reply to the "humor merchants". Obviously, your
organization is free to approach this problem any way you choose.
Actually, I was hoping you would post an update to CDP when the project
is underway to let us know how things worked out and at least some
general comments about the approach that you used. An associate and I
were just discussing a possible project he may get to integrate
engineering drawings that would be indexed in Pick.
Best wishes for success,
