I am trying to xref a drawing- the dialog pops up, hit ok, text box says "regenerating model, *invalid*. i have tried changing path type, reference type, insertion point, and i get the same message each time. i also copied the original into a new drawing file and still could not xref. any suggestions? i have read most of the xref posts and can't find any that relate to my question. thanks!

Have you tried to Audit and/or Recover the xref?

Open the problem xref drawing.

Use the Xref command and see if there are any
drawings referenced into this drawing.

If there are, detach all xrefs and saveas a
different drawing name.

Now try and attach the drawing without any xrefs to
see if this works.

If it does, then it's an xref problem within the
drawing.

Select each xref and make sure the paths of all the
xrefs are found and saved.

Detach any xrefs that cannot be found.  Now
save this drawing and see if you can xref this drawing now.
