Eons ago I wrote some lisp programs for a MFG company with a small engineering dept. Although modern CAD programs have "replaced" most of my work they recently contacted me about a specific LISP routine I wrote to help them assign part numbers in various categories. They still maintain an OLD PC with an OLDER version of AutoCad just to use this LISP routine. Basically inside a drawing the operator selects the command "newpart" fills in the required information (9 categories) and then the LISP routine opens the "newpart.htm" located on the network and appends the data to an existing htm file so it then becomes readable by everyone in the company from marketing to purchasing... "just look at the web page" It's was a great idea at the time because anyone on the network with a browser has read access to the files. Now to meet compliance requirements with a new contract, the OLD software MUST be removed or replaced with something that meets requirements. I addition they have moved onto a new CAD package that does not support LSP I don't do programming anymore so I am looking for options be it batch, Visual Basic, that could accomplish the same end result. I am so far out of the loop I don't even know enough to even ask the rights questions concerning "new" programming languages when trying to find someone to write a "new" program for them Thanks
