Daily compilation of electronically filed reports and statements. Reports and Statements from Feburary 2001 to present are available. You can download these compressed files from the FTP site.
These documents are designed to explain the FEC's electronic filing format for versions 1, 2, 3.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7x and 8.x. These files provide information for applying the format information to downloadable electronic filings.
There are three files for each version of the format: two Excel files and one rich text (or one portable document format) file. The Excel files are the format and the header files. The rich text (or portable docuemtn format) files provide supporting information for the format including acceptable values for data items and specific instructions for transaction linking and other details.
The header files in conjunction with Getting and Using FEC Electronic Filings.doc will help you load these files to a spreadsheet or database table.
The header row of the e-filing indicates what format version was used for the filing. Match the e-filing version with the version indicated in the names of these files.
Getting and Using FEC Electronic Filings.doc contains instructions for downloading electronic filings and using the headers in the e-filing headers.xls file (any version) to create tables of electronically filed data.
