Pick the pipe and there is a grip that looks like a triangle (it'll be above the pipe, not under/beside it) and this, when picked, will let you change the elevation (TOP, COP and BOP). From there you can see what the EL is at.

i tried what u asked

but the trinagle which is above is to change part

the triangle which is below it is to change elevation but it will start from 0 then you add how much u wanna bring up or down

 

but the only way i found as i show it in the pic attached it is to click on the middle blue square and see what is the coordinate in the buttom left of autocad window

 

btw i am using autocad plant 3d 2013
