The point features exported from ESRI showed as zero-length line in dgn. Anyone know how to convert zero-length line to cell?
You have sailed into the gray area of Microstation when it comes to element type conversion as many directions are not straigthforward and requires workarounds with export-import to CSV, DWG.
Does you points have tags or items attached?
No they do not. Export the coordinate then import back in as cell works. I was hoping there is a better way to handle this. Thank you everyone.

what would be even cooler would be the ability to see the esri data as a table data view so we could work out what to do with it and maybe then the ability export as table and assign cells of choice where point cells used... but at least be able to view the table before import would save time... right now I just attach it as a xref then try to see what it is, I like to copy it through after so its stand alone cad file and I can edit the symbology ie colour etc level names etc...

Bentley Map & projectwise ArcGIS connector (I believe that's what they're called) can provide these services but the configuration set is quite a bit touchy and not really user friendly.

And that's a really very expensive! option...
Global mapper very inexpensive and very powerful alternative to ArcGis and Bentley Map .. most of us only have access to Microstation and dream we could have a low cost GIS product... I have used FREEWARE QGIS but its too restricted and keeps getting updated ... my IT updated it recently and now it dont work properly anymore even when it was working ( bought the book too) was just too many steps to do really simple things I used to do in MapInfo..were going down the Global mapper option at my workplace just for simple GIS and transforms and airphoto etc corrections should be great.. plus it can create shape files from DGNs too where as plain vanilla mstn cannot...I haven't checked with ORD connect operators if they can do any of this but I don't think they can..
