    Default Evasion files N/A online

    Hi,
    I have not used the N/A's online service for locating and purchasing Evasion files since before they changed the format. Can someone please tell me the way to access them now please, as i cannot find them.
    Alan.

    They are not available for direct purchase online or for download.

    You simply need to go into the new Discovery search engine on the site, search for what your looking for and then request a quote for supply.
    WO208 seems to be the location.

    or tell us here what it is you want to obtain, someone might have them.

    There is an index of sorts here:

    Hi Dennis,
    Up until they changed the format, they had a searchable list of pages to browse, which normally started off with pow files, after which came the Evasion files. I used it on many occasions, and by clicking on the file reference, it would also show how many pages were in the file. You could then buy, and download in PDF, via Documents Online. It used to be accessible via Documents Online, by clicking on "Browse" in a column on the left of the page, which of course is now no longer there.
    Regards....Alan.

    Hi Alan,
    Can I suggest phoning TNA and explaining the situation? The new Discovery is full of glitches and blind spots and they need to hear about individual examples in order to get sorted. If you were able to view details of PDF size before, the information still exists but is somehow masked.

    I had a bit of fun the other day showing a senior bod there how to find something in Discovery: he is not a fan of the changes either.

    HTH,

    Hi Bruce,
    Thanks for that. I'm not a great lover of changes like this, after years of sailing through the old format with no bother. Will email them tomorrow.
    Alan.

    Default Re the escape and evaders site

    Yes I have just been there to look something up and find it seems to have changed beyond all I remember. Perhaps I have just got the wrong page though I seem to remember it had it all listed and one could just bever away to find what you wanted I had at one time contributed to it as well If this indeed is the same site?
    Thank you.

    regards Ant
