<file> Type of File

Description: Types of data files include raw data (ASCII, EBCDIC, etc.) and software-dependent files such as SAS datasets, SPSS export files, etc. If the data are of mixed types (e.g., ASCII and packed decimal), state that here. Note that the element varFormat permits specification of the data format at the variable level. The "charset" attribute allows one to specify the character set used in the file, e.g., US-ASCII, EBCDIC, UNICODE UTF-8, etc.


<fileType charset="US-ASCII">ASCII data file</fileType>
