Cuts and Protrusions Normal to a Surface - Success!

Many thanks to Vaughn McDaniel for his suggestion which jogged my memory on
how I had accomplished this on another part some time ago. His suggestion as
listed below works perfect. I kept trying to go down the path of attempting
to make a datum axis normal to the surface but Pro/ENGINEER at least in 2001
only allows axis normal to a planer surface which I do not have on this
part.

If the surface is not planar (it sounds like it isn't) you can create a
datum plane thru the point , tangent or normal to the curve. Then you may
have to make the other plane thru the point normal to that plane and maybe
also thru the curve. Use that as the sketch plane

Thanks to all who responded to my plea.

Regards,
