Note: When accessing files, be aware of the different formats these files and tables are in (File Structures).

NOTE: There is a known bug with trying to access files via ftp server with the Safari browser. The recommended browser for retrieving the files is Firefox.

FOS reference data consists of 9 reference file types and 15 table types. The information listed below gives a simple discription of each along with how each are named.
