After I import the fieldbook into C3D 2010, I noticed that it took my control point 1, 5000,5000 and made it 1,4999.99,4999,99. In the fieldbook, its a hand entered coord NEZ 1,5000,5000. 

I have drawing units and survye database units USfoot. Anybody deal with something similar?

Also, is there a way to edit (zero out) Point elevations that were shot reflectorless on buildings? The way I see it, if you bring in points via import fieldbook, you can't edit elevations, just the code. Thanks in advance.
