Mr. Lomax,
Thanks for the good idea. I opened the ASCII file and went to the error
lines, but still don't really know what the translator expects to see. The
format is not at all similar to Protel ASCII, but then I didn't expect it to
be either. I did learn the the version of PADS that created this is V3.5, I
suspect that the translator expects PowerPCB 2000 format. 
Has anyone had good results translating files from PADS 2000? 
Regards,

My suggestion: look at line 4519 of the ASCII translation..... (I'd 
consider using a text editor with line numbers or Excel to read the file....

The ASCII format for CAD files is frequently more or less human-readable. 
(Protel's is even better, being very well documented within the file.)
