It is always a BAD thing to explode a CAD file.  If you want to do that, you should do it in another blank project so that you can clean it up and then transfer to your project.

 

You don't need to explode a CAD file to pick lines from the file.  Obviously they are lines so the pick walls will not work.

Be aware that CAD may not be accurate ... at least not to Revit standards.  In Revit, we want parallel walls to be parallel but not necessarily so in CAD.  So if your CAD lines will dimension OK face to face, you will be OK but be forewarned that they may not be and the angles may not be 90 either.

Im having a problem now with getting a closed loop when i select the walls...iv got solid walls meeting curtain walls and they dont seem to align/create a closed loop so im unable to create a floor. Would I be better of just drawing in a floor outline in this case or is the "pick walls" command the most accurate way of doing things? cheers

Just edit the linework as required.

 

BTW - Does your floor really sit inside your walls?  If not, then you should adjust accordingly.  Wood framed residental walls, the floors go to the inside face of the sheathing.  If you do your floors right, they will automatically cut your outside walls at bearing conditions.
