Hi Mark,
Cant say that we have transferred a PADS ascii file that large,  most of
ours are 200- 800k.  But the import sequence is fairly forward and trouble
free and takes a minute.   I would advise saving the file in another format
other than 3.5.  3.5 has alot of attributes which may be slowing down the
import.  Try saving the ASCII file back to version 3.  then import  again.
If you have problems, feel free to email me [EMAIL PROTECTED] for help.
