    Default HELP!!!! Please!!!

    OK, I know this is in the wrong forum and I'll erase it when I'm done, but please help!!

    A consultant has inserted a Word file into one of our drawings and made it unselectable. I haven't inserted anything from Word in so long (I insert Excel stuff using Spanner) so I don't remember how to fix it. The architect is on the East Coast (so he's not at work) and I need to finish this before I go home.

    Please help!!!

    If it is an OLE object, try this thread. http://forums.augi.com/showthread.php?t=13638If it's inserted as an image make sure imageframe is set to 1.

    This is a shot in the dark but have you tried to audit the drawing? Are you sure it's an OLE object and not an image?

    Make sure all your layers are "on" and not locked.

    Hi!
    Forgive me if I am repeating anything you have already tried, but did you type in OLEFRAME? It should be set to 2. If it is set to 0, you will not be able to select it.
    I hope this fixes your problem.

    Thank you! OLEFRAME is an unknown command...is it new for 2006? I'm running 2004.

    Try Ole2frame instead. Yes, I am using Autocad 2006, but let me try it in 2000i...Yep, I guess it is new.
    However, you can try this method for getting rid of it. It is from the Autodesk website.
    Here is the link:

    The white paper id from the support site is: TS64541
