I am using AutoCAD 2010 and I have attached an xref into several different drawings. I copy information into the xref drawing and then close the drawing, when I reopen the drawing the xref is missing in all of the drawings?

how are you attaching your XREF files:

 

full path, relative path or no path?

 

it sounds like you are using NO PATH but have not defined the path of your XREF files in your Project Files Search Path list under tools, options, files.

 

try using relative path (if your XREF is in a relative path).

alternativley as a last resort use full path

Thanks for your help.  We are using full path now. 

When I try to define the files locations on XREF files in Project Files Search Path list under tools, options, files the browser does not open, do you know why is that?
