Web Soil Survey and AutoCad

I have downloaded the SSURGO file from Web Soil Survey. They are in .shp files, I have imported the spatial files into AutoCad Map 3d 2012. My goal is to create a Topology so that I can detemine the soil type and acres of parcels of land.

When I click on the polygon in my drawing it is a closed polygon with double line or overlapping lines and it does has object data but it is part of the line not a point as I am used to.  I hope this is making sense and I am looking for any help? 


Thank You!

Keep both parcels and soils as polygon shp files. Use data connect to add them. Then from the Analyze tab use Feature Overlay (intersect or identity) depending on desired output. You can then create a table calculation for acres in resulting sdf file. Hope this helps.
