XReference-Scale Issue

I am trying to xref a base drawing. But everytime I insert the drawing, the scale factor always comes up to be 12. I tried changing it, but it won't let me. I have attached an image of the problem I am getting.


Does anybody know how to fix this?


Thanks in advance,

Detach the Xref.

Open the Xref drawing and set INSUNITS to 2.



Open the container drawing and set insunits to 2.

Attach Xref again.
