database not switching on multiple drgs

I am operating on 2005/sp3.

I have 2 specific drawings opened at the same time. When I switch to the 2nd drawing the database remains on the first drawing.

We tried these same 2 drgs on an sp2 computer and the database followed the opened drawing.

I rebooted the computer and have the same problem with those 2 files.

This hasn't occured too often but I have had it happen before.

Any Suggestions?????

reason for database error

I found out myself why this problem rears its ugly head.

If you are in COGO mode when you click on the window to access the other drawing(s) then MS remains in the 1st drawing as far as the database is concerned although it swithes to the 2nd drawing thus you get the inverse from the 1st drawing while vievwing the 2nd drawing.

While in the 2nd drawing you can exit cogo, then return to cogo and the inverses will now be correct.

Thats the workaround to deal with the issue but MS needs to have their porgrammers close this loophole.
