Error when opening DXF file with AutoCAD 2004
« on: November 23, 2009, 12:47:07 PM »
I sent a file that I saved in a .dxf format to a person that had AutoCAD2004.  They get the following error message.

Unknown value "AC1021" encountered in drawing version.
Invalid or incomplete DXF input -- drawing discarded.

I am using TurboCAD Designer 16.1.  Why are they getting this error message?

1021 is an Autocad 2007/2009 file.  To save as a 2004 file hit the setup button in the save as dialog.

Thank you very much.  I was not aware obviously of the "Setup" button.

Thanks Again!
