We are now providing weekly update files for information about contributions from individuals of $200 or more. The complete file for individual contributions is called itcontXX.zip There are three weekly files created, one for contributions which have been added to the data base during the month, one for any records which have been deleted from the data base, and a third file for records which have been changed during the month. You should check the date on the file to determine which month’s processing is contained in the file. This documents the file of deletions - contributions deleted from the data base during the last calendar week. The record structure is the same as the Individual Contributions file.
The Contributions by Individuals Deletions File contains the following information:
|Column Name||Field Name||Position||Null?||Data Type||Description|
|SUB_ID||FEC Record Number||21||N||NUMBER (19)||Unique row ID|
