// 1. Verify that the specified drawing document to open exists.
// 2. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Opens the specified drawing document.
// 2. Inserts a table annotation.
// 3. Gets the general table feature.
// 4. Prints the name of the general table feature and
//    some of its annotation table data the Immediate window.
// 5. Examine the Immediate window.
