Developer Provided Description - Columbus is a combined navigator and viewer that allows you to organize and view data in a more structured way. Columbus combines two powerful viewing engines, supporting over 300 file formats, including Microsoft Office XP, AutoCAD 2004/2005/2006, Microstation V8 and Hewlett Packard HPGL/2. Logically related files and folders can be gathered under one heading even though they are spread across multiple folders and servers around the office or globe*. This makes it easy to view, edit, redline, issue and print data regardless of the document type or where it resides.
Comment - Also try the free Personal Version of the Columbus Viewer. Be sure to try to view it by right clicking on the file and choosing "view," rather than double clicking on the file as this will simply open the normal application associated with the file rather than the Columbus Native Viewer.
