In Autocad you cannot use regular text, it doesn't export as a dxf. You have to use express tools, explode text command which will explode the text to lines and arcs. It will require some fixing up after that.
Or you can use an aftermarket text to dxf program such as Stencil Fonts, www.cadkas.com, and import the saved dxf into your drawing, explode and go from there.
