General Usage Instructions

Prepare the database that holds information on what properties to synchronize and where. 

Put the database in another folder and make sure it is backed up. 

Make sure there is an UDL file (data source) that points out the location of the main database.

In the CAD program use ACADBSETTINGS command to specify what data source to use as the main database.

Run the ACADBMAKE command to make new/existing drawing possible to sync.

Now use either of the commands ACADBOUT or ACADBIN to sync information into CAD or out from CAD.

The command line will show full details on if there are any problems and what data has been synchronized.
