OK, then as Ian and someone else has asked, if you could post the file (or at least the first 10 lines of it) I'm sure someone could figure this out. And by 'the file', that means the actual text file, not an image of it.
OK, I just used the exact procedure I described before and the points come in fine. If you are keeping the elevation column in the point file format style, then both the original and your new will fail because the values are not numbers. By choosing the <not used> type for the elevation column it ignores these values. This is the file you just posted imported using doing just this.
Ok, just remove the quotes. When I said do a find and replace "<null>" with "0", I meant replace/use what was between the quotes.
Just for future refrence, when importing point files C3D doesn't like special characters. For instance if you had a description like TREE 10" OAK it would be truncated to TREE 10. For some reasone quotation marks end a description or in your case, skip the field entirely.
And thank you for responding. I replaced the "0" for 0 and the descriptions came in. So, if my point file has the " or any other special character in any field, it will void some of the fields?
My description column didn't have special characters.
You had two " characters, one before and one after the 0. The first one truncated the elevation field, and the second truncated the description field. I don't know why those symbols do that, but they have always done it since I have been using autodesk software. It probably served some purpose in earlier versions.
