DGN File moves when opened in ArcMap10

Discussion created by bbolduc on Dec 7, 2011
I opened my DGN file in ArcMap 10 sp2.  It does not have a Coordinate system defined.  It seems to move the data a couple feet in both x and y.  I only have the CAD files and survey points in the same custom projection opened in ArcMap.  The attached pic shows the CAD and survey points I added to ArcMap.  The triangles should overlay the circles that are numbered.  With the Dataframe properties Coordinate System set to Unkown I would think that Arcmap would just display the CAD file without trying to project it.  Any ideas??

PS when I open it in Microstation it shows the points in the correct place.
