Can you generate a list of component co-ordinates ?

I want to generate a list of all the co-ordinates for each component on a PCB.

 

For example, something like this...

 

 

RefXY
R1100150
R2235120
R3480570
C1050445
C2690140
U1080360

 

I know when you right click 'Properties' on a component it tells you the co-ordinates (in 'Layout Data').

 

But is there someway of generating a file to give me all this information, instead of having to right click on each indivual component ?

 

When a surface mount insertion machine is used to fit the components, doesnt it need information like this to place the components ?

 

So does PADS have a tool to generate this data ?
