I have a object that I created in ILL CS that I made into a symbol and then rapped around a sphere in the "extrude & bevel" options and mapped art to it (which was in my symbol lib) how would I go about making the obejct flat. By flat I mean make the effect that has the symbol on it a object.

Object-->Expand Apperance. Is think that's what you mean.

Ikarus that option is grayed out. I have the object selected but it doesn't come up

That's weird, you should be able to apply "Object-->Expand Apperance" to any shape that has any kind of effect applied to it(ie: 3D effects, brushes, etc.)
