Dear Dean Thank you for helping. The file was compounded by a .bak.dwg extension. I have it open but all I see is a small dot. I have tried everything I know to scale it up. I have zoomed extents, erased the screen after removing the dot and it still will not scale up. Plse help a little more. This was the same problem with the original dwg file so we went to a bak to restore it. Thanks Tatum
Have you tried looking in for the drawing in the location on your computer where it save all 'Automatic Saves', which is general in your C:\documents and settings\garsp\local settings\temp. Note the 'garsp' is my username yours will be different. You can also find this link under the tool menu then options, select the files tab, then under the 'Automatic Save File Location' you will find a path copy and paste that into the address bar then just scroll through you should find .dwg, .bak files in there.
I did a Zoom > Extents and deleted 4-5 "dots" on the left of my screen and then a crossing deletion of a "dot(s)" on the right side. Another Zoom > Extents and got this. Might be luck that this drawing was not one of the "dots" I deleted.
Is this the missing drawing?
These "dots" were about a Parsec away from the drawing. ;-)
