I used to sometimes find when converting a DCAD file to DWG that it would give me some wacky long number, even though I would type in the name of the DWG I wanted. Now, I am finding the conversion process consistently giving me the long number file name instead of what I type in.

Here's an example of the type of file name/number I get.

Here's my settings for the DWG conversion process.

What is the size of the resultant file? That "wacky long number" is a temporary work file created by the conversion process. The fact that is not being renamed to the name that you specified is indicative that the conversion process failed. Can you send us the DWG file that is causing this?
