Disappearing Font/Text in autoCAD

(VA)

Created a file and copied some text boxes from an existing drawing.

Now when I attempt to open the new file I am ask to choose a replacement font before the file will open.

What do I pick?

If I do not pick anything to replace the fonts or pick the wrong type i.e. "Simplex, roman... the text does not appear on the file when it opens.
