Hey Dave,

Thanks for the reply.

In trying to figure out how to take your advice I realized what my  
original problem had been: My installed version of VTK was 5.0.3, but  
I'd been looking at the documentation for the cvs 5.1.0 when I saw  
references to the SetGlobalIds() method in vtkPointData and  
vtkDataSetAttributes. It looks like 5.0.3 didn't have those methods  
defined, which is why I couldn't make them work in my program -- go  
figure! :)

I appreciate the help.
