What version is this dwg saved as??

We are currently in the middle of so many different "working" versions of software it is sometimes difficult to figure out what version a drawing has been saved in.

Here's a handy way to find out:
Go to Windows Explorer
Surf to your dwg
Right click on the dwg
Choose "open with"
Choose wordpad or notepad
At the very top you will see "AC1021" or AC w/ some numbers after it
Here's the decoder ring:
(it's actually telling you what version number it is....they stopped using consecutive R version numbers and started using the year for the name of the product)
1023 = 2009
1022 = 2008
1021 = 2007
1020 = 2006
1019 = 2005
1018 = 2004...and so on
1014 = R14
