Drawing conversion

Using ABS2004 I've created a ductwork drawing. Since the Architect is still
using AC2000, at the end, I've converted it (export to 2000). To make sure
that everything is ok, I opened the drawing with 2002. All was correct. I've
sent it to the architect and I was surprised, when the guy called me asking
when I would send him the ductwork, not just text. Since I had no idea what
he was talking about, I opened the very file I've sent, with 2002. To my
astonishment, the drawing had everything on it, except ductwork. I learned
what the architect meant, however still I have no idea why it happend and
why the ductwork miraculously disappeared. Any help would be appreciated.

There are two option for conversion to autocad 2000.

1. AECexplode the ductwork to autocad entities.

2. Set proxygraphics to 1 and save file. This doesn't always work.

I used the export to Acad2000 command (file menu)and our client w/ ADT 2i (Acad 2000i) was able to open, read all ductwork, and print these drawings fine.
