I recieved an email with an excel file containing the coordinates and corresponding elevations for a particular site. In the same email I recieved an autocad file depicting the site. When the autocad drawing is shown in the folder as a thumbnail, it depicts all of the coordinates (w/elevations) on the drawing. Now when I open said autocad file, the coordinate points are not visible. I have already searched through the layers and cannot find one for the points from the excel file.
My question is how does one import an excel file with a list of coordinates and elevations into an autocad drawing so as to show the points with their individual elevations?
