I am an Arc10 user.  I have a .dgn file and I have NEVER worked with this file type before.  I am trying to use it in Arc, but can not seem to get it to work. 

First, I defined the projection (using the coordinate system that was used in microstation - NAD83 UTM Zone 14N).

Then, in ArcCatalogue, I right clicked the .dgn file and tried to 'Export to shapefile (multiple)'.

When I added these files to a blank .mxd, they were completely blank.  Absolutely nothing in the attribute table. 

Any suggestions on how to get this .dgn to be a .shp would be greatly apprecaited.
