I'm trying to embed an Auto CAD drawing into an MS Access form and/or report.  The Auto CAD files exists and was created in AutoCAD 2007 and opens just fine on its own.  In Access 2003, I've opened a form and tried to insert object and choose Auto CAD drawing.  It comes up blank and I can't seem to link it to the drawing I want to display.  I thought maybe I could change the "Source Doc" property, but it doesn't seem to have any affect.  Is there some way to display the Auto CAD file?  Ultimately, it will need to be able to display any one of several files, but I would like to see it display even just one.
