Point Elevations

I'm working in a drawing that I originally received from an architect. I changed the units setting from architectural to decimal, and rescaled the objects. There were no Civil 3D points in the original drawing.

I've added numerous Civil 3D points to the drawing. When I export the points, elevations come out in inches. (i.e., if I input a point at elevation 700, the elevation is exported as 8400.)

The same thing happens if I use the Autocad Move command to adjust elevations. I have to input the displacement Z coordinate in inches to make the point label display a change in feet.

Can anybody suggest a setting that might need to be changed?
