You are close Jason, and thanks,

but we only save our drawings to novell server by windows explorer and do
not perform a "Save As" feature to save drawings. I think the problem is
occuring when we open and plot files if im not mistaked.

an example of a file is as below:

100-1936-30013F384DB.ac$

the autal file that was printed was 100-1936-300.dwg.
so it added something that looks like a CRC validation, if im right.
i dont know.

any ideas?
