I'm a Newbie with AutoCAD. Right now im creating a drawing and I was told to get all the points with the same description onto a new Point Group. Well i have done that and my next question is how to get that point group onto a seperate layer/new layer, so that when I'm working with all the other points, I can just turn off that point group so it wont be too crwded. Steps on how to do it will be appreciated. thanx

Welcome to the Forums!
You can override the display of points in the point group. Set the styles on the Information tab, and check the boxes on the Overrides tab.
I find Google a much better way of searching for old posts than the internal search. For example:

As a general note, Civil 3D is based on Styles and it is these that control when Layers are turned on and off rather than via the standard Layer Properties.
Always make sure you start from the correct Civil template as well
No need to have on separate layer. Set the point and label properties for that group to None to turn them off.
Here's my next problem.
I created 3 point groups so far and labeled all three (CONC, FCOR, XS) and they all have their own same raw descriptions. When I get to the fourth point group, labeled GND (ground shots) I've done the same steps. For this point group I included all points matching the raw description GND. I then click on the point list and all the points i want on that point group are there. When i click to add point group or turn them on, for some reason the CONC point group comes on and my GND point are no where to be seen. What is causing this to happen.
What's the order of the hierarchy of the point groups? For instance, in this case CONC outranks GND which outranks XS, etc. etc. So if you have a point that is in both the CONC group and the GND group then it will take on the properties of the CONC group because it's at the top of th list. To edit this hierarchy, right-click on point groups and select properties:
