Coordinate change when importing into Civil 3D

September 5, 2012

Recently I had civil 3d loaded on my new computer.  Autocad Administrator told me LDD2007 is no longer being supported, therefore won't be installed.  Must use Civil 3D 2013.  I am importing a fieldbook file into an existing LDD drawing using Civil3D.  When imported, all the points are roughly 2 feet to the south and west.  Open fieldbook file and starting coordinates are correct, but not correct in the dwg.  Any suggestions as to why?  I think it is just a simple setting, but can find out which one.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I can export the points to dummy dwg, correct them, then re-import, but I want to correct the problem because this comes up on every time when importing into old LDD dwg.
