Drawing view problem

I try to bring in Inventor a custom frame that is done in Autocad. I
have a Title Block with attribute in it. When I save back in .dwg, I have no
text, no attribute and the dimension are not real dimension but Autocad
block. Each line as is own linetype. Inventor is not supposed to be closely
link with Autocad ???
I want to do this because my client need to have specific dwg with is
own title, Bill of Material etc... How can I bring is Standard to Inventor?

While importing the dwg in Inventor, have you tried using the Options
button?
Deep down in the Options (the last page titled "Import destination
options"), there is radio button that says "Titleblock". Make sure you
select this.
We added this option for the very same operation you want to achieve:
convert an AutoCAD block with attributes into an Inventor title block with
prompted values.

Of course I did. But that what I say, when I re-export it in .dwg all
attribute are gone, my dimension are explode or autocad block.
