How to turn polylines into polygons (arcmap 10.2)

I am hoping some expert here can save me a lot of time!


I have been supplied some mapping which was created in CAD and exported to dwg.


We are working with ArcMap 10.2.


I have added the dwg file in, however quite a number of what should be polygons have come in a Polylines.  They look like Polygons, but on zooming in I can see they is a tiny area on each which isn't quite complete.


For my purposes I need them to be Polygons.  I have had a google and can see that there is a method to convert lines to polygons, but I think this only applied in newer versions of arcmap.


To save me tracing each polyline (there is a lot!) is there a way I can turn these polylines into polygons, autocompleting the small section that is missing?


Thank you!
