Hi All,

I 've got some AutoCad (.DWG) files and I want to convert them to simple (.shp).
However, it seems that the CAD file doesn't have any spatial reference information. 
When I look at the dwg in Autocad the coordinates are like  X: 2555349.1489 Y: 5674121.6214
and I want o convert them to usual:
Angular Unit: Degree (0.017453292519943299)
Prime Meridian: Greenwich (0.000000000000000000)
Datum: D_WGS_1984
  Spheroid: WGS_1984
    Semimajor Axis: 6378137.000000000000000000
    Semiminor Axis: 6356752.314245179300000000
    Inverse Flattening: 298.257223563000030000
(Decimal Degrees) (Map View)


I did try to project the cad file by importing Coords from other GIS file but it didn't work. The result is like it keeps the CAD coordinates  and display them in Decimal Degrees;

Any Ideas?
