MessageIf you are using ArcGIS 8 or 9 without ArcInfo Workstation there
is a specific function to convert shape files to CAD .dwg or dxf files.
I ran across it yesterday looking for a smoother conversion in the other
direction.
Like a lot of ArcGIS functions it's part of the slightly cumbersome
ArcCatalog.  In Catalog, Search "Export to CAD/Tool Catalog'

  Help!  I need to bring a GIS data layer into MicroStation.  If anyone
knows how to convert the layer to either a .dxf or a .dwg file, please
respond.  I'm very very new to GIS.

  Thanks,
  Amber Mikluscak
