If explode is what you really want to do, use xref manager to bind the xref and then it will be a block and can be 'sploded.

as soon as i tried to edit it, it changed to a drawing title on the page. instead of a drawing it now just says "x-ref.dwg" on the screen. when i preview the drawing on the "open drawing" window it shows the drawing when i open it it changes to the "x-ref.dwg". any advice?

thanks

The "preview" is just a snapshot of the drawing when it was last saved,
and is no indication of how the drawing will appear when you open it..
as you have seen....

It sounds like you have some missing xrefs. Check the External
References palette and the correct the path to your reference files.
