Yep, a hot button for ANY of us in the role of trying to "get our

Speaking of this, have any of you had any experience with
Intradoc/Xpedia?  I saw a presentation on this product just recently
and while it seems to be geared to "desktop documentation" primarily,
but because it's based in Adobe (PDF format) images, I'd assume it
can be opened up to others.

One of the features of this product is you can set an "expiration
date" for items included in the EDM system, but like the "scan
everything" folks, when quizzed on the functionality of this feature,

it" <=8^)

It's NOT INEXPENSIVE... licenses are in the range of $170k and it
requires Windows NT or SQL server and MS Web Browser to support the

Would appreciate any feedback from users-
