What kind of cad-files?
LAYERS (DWG terminology) and Levels (Microstation terminology) are the same!
use the SAVE AS(options)/remapping register to see what can be done and how it has to be done!

frank when I go to do my save as the (save as v8 options) the 5 fields under the CSV file are greyed out and can't be clicked on. any ideas
Chris, you mean was able to import 'Levels' and 'Line Styles' by selecting the icon/button in execl worksheet (that icon is not in other worsheets) or manually added those lines?
Have you read instructions in each worksheet and the instructions worksheet? let say remaping Cell with CSV is only saving to DGN V7 file format.
Maybe older way writing remap table would be easier. Following old wiki article: communities.bentley.com/.../csv-files-remapping-your-data.aspx
and maybe this: communities.bentley.com/.../2952.aspx
You may attach your created *.csv file so we could review it. I have just tested creating new *.csv and all works.
good morning darius,
thanks for offering to look at the file. attached is the excel spread sheet.
I see you have imported Levels, Line Styles (guess using the button in worksheet). You should be able to do the same with Fonts:
For the Colors, Weights you need manually add values in 'Color', 'Weight' columns and set to what value you will remap at 'V8OutputWeight':
After those two steps, saving excel file, you should see at same place the *.csv file that needs to be loaded in Save As V8 Options:
In order to see the 'Level Mapping', 'Line Style Mapping', 'Color Mapping' fields active you must add the values at 'V8Output...' columns in required worksheets.
I have attached xls and csv files with some modifications done.
Hope it helps.
thanks for your help. now the fun begins populating the fields.
I am trying to save a dwg to dgn while mapping the linestyles. I have created a CSV file and populated the Linestyles tab however the "apply line style mapping" tickbox is still greyed out.
Does anyone know why?
