In AutoCAD 2002, I am trying to put multiple pages into same .dwg file, and if I enter page number, it shows me that page. Are there anyways to do that? Thanks in advance.

welcome to the forum.
check out the layout tabs on the bottom of the screen.
you can right click on them and copy, paste and move, even import layouts (pages) from other files.
they work on the same principal as tabs in excel.

You can add layouts by right-clicking a layout tab, and choosing one of the options such as "new layout", or "copy".
As far as opening pages, something you might want to look into is hyperlinks.
1: Use either mtext or dtext, then enter "Assembly View" or whatever, then restart that command and below the first text, enter "Exploded View" or whatever, and continue one text for each layout. 2: Type "hyperlink" at the command line and choose the first text you created. 3: On the lower left-hand side of the "Insert Hyperlink" dialog box, choose the "Target" button. 4: A pop-up box will, well, pop-up, choose the corresponding layout, and hit OK. 5: Back at the "Insert Hyperlink" dialog box, at the very top at the "Enter text to display", enter some description of that page which will be used in a tooltip. 6: Continue this for the other text you created.
If you hover over one of these texts, there will be a little hyperlinkg cursor, and a tooltip should now show up. If it doesn't, enter "hyperlinkoptions" at the command line, and enter yes for both options, then enter "options" at the command line, go to the "Drafting" tab, and make sure the "Display Autosnap Tootip" check-box is checked. Sounds a little tedious, but not as bad as it sounds. Oh yeah, to go to the hyperlink, pick the text, right click it, and on choose on the right-click menu, choose hyperlink and go from there.
