CSV Files for Overlap Reports

You can request a .csv file for an Overlap Report when that report reaches its 1-million record limit. A report may have reached this limit when you see an "Unexpected error has occurred" message. Contact Customer Care to request a compressed .csv file, which you can import and work with in your own database system. Files are available for segment-to-segment, segment-to-trait, and trait-to-trait overlap reports.

File Name Metadata

The following table list and describes the file naming conventions and file extensions use in an overlap .csv file. In the examples, italics indicates a variable placeholder.
Metadata Element Description
File Extension
Overlap report files are gzip compressed and have a .gz file extension. You must add the .csv extension to the file after decompression.
File Name
File name syntax:
  • Segment-to-segment files: S2S_overlap_ partner ID _ yyyy-mm-dd _ date range
  • Segment-to-trait files: S2T_overlap_ partner ID _ yyyy-mm-dd _ date range
  • Trait-to-trait files: T2T_overlap_ partner ID _ yyyy-mm-dd _ date range
Date Range
The date range for a report is a 5-digit ID that includes:
  • 70000 for a 7-day report.
  • 30000 for a 30-day report.
Multiple Files
We increment the last digit in the file name if a report contains multiple files.
Examples
File name examples for a single report:
  • Single, 7-day file: S2S_overlap_12345_2017_01_14_70000.gz
  • Single, 30-day file: S2S_overlap_12345_2017_01_14_30000.gz
File name examples for a report with multiple files:
  • S2S_overlap_12345_2017_01_14_70000.gz
  • S2S_overlap_12345_2017_01_14_70001.gz
  • S2S_overlap_12345_2017_01_14_70002.gz
