The ASCII Files come in 2 different formats. Both ASCII Files are available to you in addition to the Microsoft Access databases.

File 1: All Zip Codes and Acceptable City and State Names

The sample above contains more than one city for zip codes "00603" and "00604".  The "1" denotes the primary city and the "0" denotes a secondary city name for the same zip code.  Some zip codes can have multiple secondary cities.

File 2: Primary City and State for Each Zip Code
