Scale X and Y, but not Z

I have a topo with some spot elevations in a drawing that was sent to us from another company that I want to xref into an existing drawing of ours. In the drawing they sent, its not in the correct ucs or scale that the original drawings are in, but the elevations are correct. Is there a way to scale everything by the x and y axis but not the z axis?

You can make a block of the source content, insert it at differing scale
factors, then explode. Note however that polylines will be exploded, it
does this because polyarc segments could become elliptical arcs.

We (DotSoft) also have an independent XYZ scale routine. If this is a
one time shot, email me the drawing to dotson [at] dotsoft [dot] com and
we'll scale it using that routine.

It is a one time shot, so the block option worked great. Thank you for that. Simple solution that I'm sure gets over looked all too often.
