Copying blocks

Excuse my ignorance but I'm very much a beginner. I copied a block from one drawing to another but when I inserted it, the size blew out massively, ie from a 40 metre object to about 40,000 metres and I can't seem to be able to manipulate it correctly.
I assume it's something to do with the way I've saved it but I'm confused.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

the first thing I would suggest, is to post a drawing here. 
This is a lot quicker, than trying to guess what the problem may be. 
It looks like a simple scaling issue, but . . . . .

Thanks Tim,
I worked it out. Stupid mistake - I had the wrong scale setup in one drawing.
See, I really am a beginner...
