3.1.15 Externally Referenced Files.
The use of externally referenced files by AutoCAD and MicroStation allows for the viewing of all or part of a drawing file from another drawing file (host file). Sheet files or reducedscale files shall not be utilized as reference files. Only full-scale drawing files shall be utilized as references. Nesting of reference files shall be avoided. As files are created and referenced, filenames shall not be changed, as it will result in the inability of the host file to find its reference files. All reference files shall be included with file transfers to and from the FAA. Merge all reference files into the final drawing package when one or more of the following criteria is met:

· Prior to archiving old revisions of drawing files.
· The drawings are obsolete.
