i have a point file specifically a PNEZD file. when i import points into the survey database the coordinate in the database is correct but the coordinate on the drawing tends to be 5 feet off one way and 1 foot off the other. When I import point through the points pull-down menu the coordinates are correctly shown. When I import point into survey database from drawing the coordinate is incorrect in the database but correct on screen. Any help about what might be going on here.

Check to be sure you have set either International Feet or US Survey foot in both the Drawing Settings and the Survey Database Settings. Having one of these set to International and the other to US will cause a problem like what you describe.
You should also be aware that any transformation settings you have set to the drawing will be applied during an import from the database.
