Thanks again for your help, I have been contacted by Nick r.e. the software and will look at Prion Cutting Edge.
I work in UK East Midlands and we use Majenta (www.majentaplm.com)
They give us excellent service.
By the way, don't forget you can download a 45 day free trial.
Thanks for the info, I have been contacted by Jessica at majentaplm. I'm all set thanks guys, just need to run everything past the management now
