Problem with .asc file when exporting to Solidworks

Can anyone tell me why, when exporting an .asc file to use in Solidworks, that all is seen in the board outline and not the populated pcb design?  I recently updated to PADS 9.4 but also tried it on our previous 9.3 version and have the same results.  Would there be something else that may've been overlooked when generating it?'s an easy process so i don't know what that could be.  Our mechanical team is saying that their forums are pointing to "create the .asc file in an earlier PADS version" but I don't know of a way to do this.  Could there be something on the Solidworks side of things that may not allow them to view the full design anymore?

Thanks in advance!
