Subject: Number of pages in cabinet

I have been asked by someone who is not on the list for assistance.
They are getting ready to go to a edms system and was wondering whether
to do backfiles and/or go day forward.



The question is "How many pages of documents would be in a letter sized
filing cabinet drawer?".



For some reason I keep thinking it was about 10,000 per drawer.



Anyone have a location that might have that information?



Thanks
