Problem Saving Map Coordinate System

Hi everyone, I'm posting for one of our users...Please advise a way of saving the 'Map Coordinate System' on a specific drawing? - For example, I need to use Coordinate System MGA-55 when working on an Australian Project, and UTM84-39N when working on a Kazakh Project, however, if I set my coordinate system to MGA-55, then save my drawing, the Coordinate system resets to UTM84-39N when I reopen the same drawing (it appears not to be saved with the drawing). I'm Using 'AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 (64bit) running on Windows 7. Thanks!

Before saving, try to force the current CRS thru the _ADESETCRDSYS command, sir.
