I am trying to recreate some archived ASCII files (.asc) to be imported into DxDesigner schematic capture designs.
First of all, I am not a PADS user. My boss asked me recreate the .asc file for another company without letting me talk to the folks requesting the file.
I am exporting the ASCII file from PADS version 9.4 using the following steps:
1. Write ECO File > append to file
2. FILE >> EXPORT
3. Provide file name; name.asc
4. FORMAT = PADS Layout V2007
5. UNITS = CURRENT (mils)
6. CATEGORIES: Parts, Connections, Misc
The file that outputs begins like this;
..and continues in that general format.
The file format I am trying to replicate looks like this;
..and continues in this same general format.
Both files have the same three categories, but I can't seem to get the new .asc file to look like the second format.
I have tried several different options without success.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
