Can you attach it to a blank file as a reference, then copy through the

If it's not too big you could post it to the News Group, or email it to me
by replying to this email and I could try

Failing that, there is a utility called EDG provided with MicroStation for
fixing files. I can't remember where it is in MS95 but if you search the
bentley directory for edg.exe you'll find it. In explorer, drag and drop the
MicroStation design file onto it. When it opens, assuming it doesn't say it
is not a valid design file, type "repair whole", then "exit".

8. Plot PMP File Error message

This is driving me nutz...

At work I use to have Autocad LT 2002.  Now I've a full version of 2005.

But with many of my older drawing files, evertime I go to plot them I get the
following Error message:

" There was an error opening the file C:\PROGRAM FILES\AUTOCAD LT
2002\drv\SomeFileName.pmp.  The PMP file has been set to None. "

My current Printer Description file path is correct and under my User name in
Documents and Settings - ...AutoCAD 2005\R16.1\enu\plotters\PMP Files

So how do I (if possible) get rid of this annoying message?

I've looked through XP Registry for the PMP file, but no joy.

Is this info buried in each DWG file?

Any thoughts appreciated.
