My customer has provided an art gerber file. I am able to open it as a gerber file in a gerber viewer, but I had not previously seen this sort of gerber file. Unfortunately, it seems that customer used lines to fill areas and these lines are not useful in GDS. I want just the polygons for the outlines, and do not want the lines used to fill areas.

From what I understand you need "polygons" instead of lines which are typically used in Gerber files. Here's a sample tutorial movie showing how the use the ACE 3000 command "Merge Overlapping Objects" which converts those lines into Polygons which can make the conversion to GDSII more easier.
