I always wonder why people refuse to use tools that are there and have been paid for
and ask people do carry on additional work just to satisfy their whims

P.S. ( even if before the signature )
I do not know whether it is simpler to do it with ICEMAN or ICETOOL
I am just pointing out an annoying approach to problems

If that is a business requirement it is stupid. The business shouldn't be dictating the tools you use. If it is a technical requirement it is stupid. You paid for ICETOOL, use it.

Hi Steve,

I have lost count of the times I have remarked such behaviour,
clueless ( add as many derogatory adjectives as You like ) organizations seem always to win
