Orcad Capture has a schem part field for TOPSIDE or BOTTSIDE

is there a way in 99SE or P2004 to get the netlist to
dump the part on the indicated side of the board ?

No, not automatically.

You could use a part field (99SE) or a parameter (DXP/P2004) to indicate what side and then select and change globally - you would need a method to select components in the PCB based on what is selected in the Sch - can this be done in P99SE? (P2004 has a command to select PCB components based on what is selected in Sch, it works for components selected on multiple sheets. I can't recall if P99SE has this.)

A script could do the layer flip in P2004 (iterate over all components and flip any that are on the wrong layer compared to the parameter/part field). Not sure if a macro could do it in P99SE, it may be able to but macro functionality is quite limited. A server could do it in P99SE. There are some tricks as you would need to deal with of course as the PCB components do not carry the part fields/parameters so you need to go back and compare with the Sch or the netlist.
