Solution:

PADS 9.0 and newer:
Beginning with PADS 9.0 there is native IPC netlist extract capability.  Go to File > Export and change the "Files of Type" from ASCII Files (*.asc) to IPC 356 Files (*.ipc).  After clicking save you will be able to choose between IPC-D-356 or IPC-D-356A netlist output.
PADS2007.4 and older:
The older versions of PADS do not have native IPC netlist extraction.  However, you can download a VB script that has been written by a 3rd party vendor at CapeCAD.com (note, the VB script has not been tested by Mentor Graphics and we assume no responsibility for it’s accuracy).
