Can't open IDW & IPN files

Hi Group,
Help...I cannot open my IPN & IDW files for a job although I still see a
little
preview in the exployer window for both.

A zipped set of the files has been posted to CF under same heading

I think the cause of the problem is that I had to change some IPT & IAM file
name using Design Assistant but I also I inadvertantly changed the file
name on the one IPN file (for an exploded view only) manually in the
exployer, then tried to open the IDW file that ref's it. I get the error
message below when trying to open either IPN or IDW file.

The IAM assembly opens fine.

"Invalid reference to segment objects found"

I renamed the IPN file back to what it was before in the exployer & still
get the error.

I also tried to open files while Design Assist was up but canceled the open
after finding out that was a no-no.

Any help would be very appreciated & will greatly reduce the anxiety factor.

question.)
