Importing DGNs

Hello -

I have a number of DGNs that I am importing to ArcGIS. Normally I view the DGNs in ArcCatalog, right-click on them and export them to shapefile and all goes well. I have one file, a polyline, however, that does not want to co-operate. Whichever way I try to import or export the file, I lose the attributes in the Layer field, rendering the file useless. I have viewed the file in Bentley's Viewer and see that the attributes are all there in the DGN file

Methods I've used to import (unsuccessfully) include:
- In ArcCatalog, right-clicking on the file and choose Export, either to Geodatatabase or Shapefle
- In ArcToolbox, going to Data Interoperability Tools > Quick Import
- In ArcToolbox, going to Conversion Tools > To Shapefile > Feature Class to Shapefile (multiple)
- In ArcToolbox, going to Conversion Tools > To Coverage > Feature Class to Coverage
Any other other suggestions?
