GIS Users,

As you know, we are in the process of implementing a new ArcSDE server.
Everything is going well and it is time for you to make two changes to =
ArcView 3.2a setup and existing ArcView 3.2a projects.

(1) The first thing to do is update your ArcView 3.2a STARTUP file to =
to the new versions of the FDEP extensions.  Click on the link below to =
up the update web page.  Follow the instructions on the web page.  It is
important to do this before you do item (2) below.  You should do this =
soon as possile.

	Click here and select "Open it"  to bring up the update web page =

(2) The second thing to do is to translate all of your existing projects =
use SDE data to draw the data from the new ArcSDE server.  To accomplish
this, we have created a translation program named SDESRVCHNG (an EXE
executable).  The SDESRVCHNG program reads an ArcView 3.2a project file,
creates a backup copy just in case bad things happen, and re-writes the =
pointing to the new ArcSDE server.  (The backup project is named
<OriginalProjectName>_bu.apr, where <OriginalProjectName> is the =
name of the project file.)

	Click here and select "Save to disk" =3D=3D>

This will copy the EXE to your computer.  You may run it from your =
This program does not require an installation process other than copying =
your local machine.

	   *** Please translate your existing ArcView 3.2a projects using SDE
layers by 7/16/02 ***
