We recently discovered that AutoCAD does not seem to work well with XREFs that have commas in the file name.

If the name of the XREF drawing file contains a comma, AutoCAD will execute the "audit" command during file load and rename the XREF layers. This results in AutoCAD displaying all XREF layers instead of just the ones that were displayed when you exported the file from DataCAD.

If you plan to export a file to AutoCAD, and that file contains XREFs, we recommend that you avoid using commas in the file names.
