Mr. Lomax
        You are right on the money this is how the validation works. when a
part is designed it goes in a special file on the web sight as a "not
validated part". When a designer or Protel (if where lucky) can validate the
part the name of the person who validated it is put on the part and it is
then moved to the validated folder. I believe there is a lock on the
folders, We as designers can not change parts we post them and someone else
moves them to the validated and not validated folders.
