I mentioned something like this many years ago. We often have one large job such as subdivisions with multiple phases. There are several plans drawn up which access the same data base. It would be nice to have one drawing that would contain the database and could be xreference in the several drawings that we prepare for the job and have a link back to the coordinates in the database drawing to transfer those particular coordinates being accessed in the database drawing to the current working file. So long as the link between the 2 is established than if the coordinates in the original database drawing is changed that there will be a notification in the other drawing of the change with a few options including to sever the link if so desired.
