trouble with xrefs

I received a drawing that contains xrefs, and I wan to take parts of the drawing and copy them to another file, but CAD won't let me explode them, and when I try to copy to another folder and then explode, it says that the externam reference was ignored and nothing pastes. Is there a way to get that geometry to be manipulated, or to maybe re-incorporate the xref? Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.

You can try attached routine to explode all xrefs and blocks. Then copy part of it.

It works on clipped xref as well.
