Where and how do I change the default .csv for the AutoMap library.

The Default.cvs file is mscad.cvs

The mscad.cvs is the file you edit.

You can have other cvs file, but the mscad.cvs is the file that Mscad will
load.

I have edited the mscad.cvs for feet units and have a metric.cvs for
metric units.

You have to edit these files though Automap.

I would like AutoMap to default to a csv file on a server, so all the machines are working with the same file, then I only have to change the file in one place.

I believe that won't work. We have a server and only data is on it.

I copied the same mscad.cvs file to all the other computers we have.

All our templates reside on the server and they work well, I just need to know where to change the default library settings from C:\MSCAD2004\mscad\mscad.csv to another file name or location.

Default location

As Richard mentioned, the default location and file name can not be set or changed by the user. It uses the MSCAD.CSV file in the C:\MSCAD2004\MSCAD folder and this can not be changed.
