Message I work alongside a department which uses CAD and have easily been importing data into ArcView before. However, they have just upgraded to CAD 2010 and I cannot seem to display the data any more. I currently use ArcView 9.3.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you, 
  Sian Ferguson

Message I doubt we will have the funds to purchase the next version of ArcView, is there any other way of converting the file?

You can back save DWG files to version 2008 so they will work in ArcGIS Desktop.
