translate survey database rotating issues

I am trying to rotate a database through translate survey database and after I input all of my info (rotation basepoint etc.) it is rotating all of the points no where near where they are suppose to be. I was experimenting with the command a bit using various rotation angles, and it seemed to work at first, but I got out of my drawing without saving and got back in and I tried to do it again using the same rotation base point etc. (the correct way that I knew had worked at one point during my experimenting) and the location of the points are all out of whack now. Did I do something unintentionally to the points or do I maybe have to re-import the fieldbook? This has happened to me before and I am not quite sure what's going on......thanks.

I thought not saving the drawing would be a safe way to not save any of my translating....

Edits to the survey database sometimes are not refelected in the drawing, remove the points in the drawing, reinsert them from the database. and correct the rotation based on the data in the drawing.

Note: Even though you do not save the drawing the changes are made to the database as soon as you click the Finished / OK. The drawing and the database are to seperate things.

thank you for clarifying this for me. I now understand the database better. I was under the impression that I could do whatever I wanted to the points and as long as I did not save drawing, the point edits would not change.
