I want to insert an external drawing as a block and make it annotative.
Something is wrong with this code, I allways get a fatatl error after
inserting the block. Does anyone know what is wrong with the attached code?

doc.Database, FindFileHint.Default);

//insert it as a new block

//create a ref to the block
