I have a file with a nested Xref that won't show up.

I get a message: "This drawing contains orphaned references" ... which I assume is the nested Xref I'm speaking of. However when I open the Xref, the Xref nested in it it shows up fine, and there is no message about orphaned references.

Am I explaining this problem clearly?

Any ideas as to what's going on here?

Many thanks!-

If the xref'd file has an xref that contains a file that isn't there or renamed it will show up as an orphaned reference. You'll have to follow all of the xref's back (learned from frustrating experience!).
