Hi Rich,

Depending on the release of AutoCAD, Corel may be able to help. Although I
haven't done so recently, in previous projects, I used Corel Draw to import
AutoCAD (release 12, if memory serves) and then export to an early version
of AI. However, that was Corel Draw 6 -- the latest is version 9 and I
would be surprised if it didn't handle the last-but-one version of both the
AI and AutoCAD formats.

Thanks for the info on the Framers list -- I haven't received anything from
that server since Saturday and was wondering if I'd been unsubscribed!

HTH,
