"units" not saved in drawing

After setting units to Architectural, I find that after setting them and
saving them, they do not seem be to retained after closing and reopening the
drawing. However it works on a new, fresh drawing. Why?

Any help is appreciated,

Dan,

I have experienced this also. Are you saving as R14?

Dan - Are you using a network version of Land Desktop by chance? If
so, refer to 'Drawing units are automatically changed'. On the
Autodesk Search web site (http://search.autodesk.com) enter this
string: TS37133

There is also a Land Desktop discussion group where you can post for
further details:

Dan,

Save it in R2000 and you won't have the problem.
