I am fairly new with autodesk and well I have an issue.
I recieved a drawing from a co-worker and opened it using c3d 2012, a window appears with the following text: This drawing contains newer versions of objests. to work with the newer objects in a limited fashion, enable proxy graphics and then rename the drawing in the current version. you can also export the drawing to autocad: however, be aware this permanetly converts the AEC objects to basic autocad objects.
I only have one option to close the window, and another shows up with the following: This drawing was created with a newer version of civil3d. all entities created by civil 3d within the drawing are in a proxy state. Additionally, all commands, settings, and displays of civil3d are disabled for this drawing.
Any insight would be much appreciated.

Solved! by Jay_B. See the answer in context.
Open the drawing and type 'OPTIONS' _tab OPEN AND SAVE and choose 'show proxy graphics'.
Ask to your co-worker to export the drawing to autocad.
