Drawing files created in AutoCAD® versions older than 2004 and saved in a version of AutoCAD that uses a different language may not properly display text. For example, a drawing created in AutoCAD Japanese 2000 and reopened and saved in AutoCAD English 2002 may display text improperly when opening the saved drawing in AutoCAD Japanese 2000 or AutoCAD 2007.
This DOS utility will change the codepage of drawing files saved in a language other than the language the file was originally created in, allowing text to be displayed correctly.
