Thanks, I will check it out.
Yes I want to be able to import images (graphics really) and replay
them in Greplay with a combination of Gslide and SAS Graph output. I
then want to sent this to print using the PS300 postscript output
Is there a CGM drawing program (Windows) which is compatible with SAS
