Mine??? You are confused, or I severly misunderstood you. I never had an AM.
Maybe you are asking for my opinion (though I am not sure). I have posted my
view on DAM processing before, so you can look it up in the archive.
Just in case you misunderstood me in the first place, the above question was
rhetorical in nature. I don't share the view expressed in the question. This

I think your best bet is to ask your application manager what the problem
is. He should be the first contact person for you with problems in the
procedure. Try to remain calm but firm.
