Leica TCR 407 Total Station - import export data

Leica TCR 407 Total Station - import export data


i have a problem with the point data exchange system: when I transfer a job from the total station to a dxf file, an error appears telling me that the dxf file is invalid. I use an old Leica Geo Office tools, but it should do the job. Currently I open the dxf file with notepad and extract the surveyed data from there by copying them directly, one by one, which is very time consuming.
I also want to import in the total station the point coordinates of points I'll stake out. I have no clue how to do this yet, so I introduce them manually. Very annoying.
So any advice on additional software or type of files for data import would be very useful.

Thank you,
