Searching for Components Placement List

Hi everyone,

My manufacturer is asking for CPL, Components Placement List.
I didn't find it in Altium.
Where is it ?
Thank you very much for your help.

I would think your manufacturer needs the pick and place list or ODB++ file... I usually also send a CL-file.. thats just a pdf with the board, component outline and designators on it to create a CL file just create a PDF with the output manager of your top overlay, and if applicable your mechanical layers for designators and board outline.

Thanks for reply.
I generated the ODB++ file and sent it to the manufacturer.
Waiting for the reply ..

Hi again. After checking with the manufacturer, the ODB++ file is not the one he is waiting for.
Here attached a screenshot of the xls file he wants.

Thank you for your help.
