I am unable to see the sheet format after inserting an AutoCad sheet format.
do anybody know how to get it?
There are several possibilities. The title block may be on a Layer that's turned off, or the scale may be off so that it's so small it's difficult to see, are just two of them. Can you post a drawing here with this sheet format? See How can I attach a file to a forum post? if you aren't familiar with the process.
Please find the attached AutoCad file with template which I am trying to insert and also attached the sheet format which I created from it and then tried to insert.
I got the same result. I assume there was something wrong with setting up the .slddrt, but I don't work with importing AutoCAD title blocks, so I don't know for sure. I'm sure someone else will be able to help.
Thanks Glenn for your effort
In the wizard that is used to import dwg to slddrw, select the layers you want on the sheet format.
Thanks for your effort Wayne,
Yes that is the only option left out but not the ideal one as if we import dwg/dxf file directly into slddrw, it wont go under "edit sheet format" and this dwg/dxf file will appear as 2 view in the main drawing area.

I don't understand what you mean by "2 views".
But if you mean that both Model and Layout1 are imported and each gets a drawing sheet then you can either delete the Model tab or during the import, select the Model tab and uncheck "Import this sheet" and return to Layout1 and select the layers as Mr. Matus replied above:
Thanks Kevin for that information.
what I was trying to convey is, If we try to insert a dxf/dwg file directly into a SW drawing, it will form as a view in the main SW drawing area where as if we are able to successfully load it as sheet format we would able to edit in the background of drawing sheet (Edit sheet format).
Even before I started working at SOLIDWORKS, the thing I would always recommend is to just create the sheet format from scratch in SOLIDOWORKS. It's actually really simple, and gives you a chance to do it right up front without baggage. You can create automatically filled-in fields that pull data from the model, for example. It's even simpler these days with the newer tools available, like Automatic Border.
