The main data file is available in three layouts, called Spreadsheet, TriCol and Deltas, each of which is accompanied by several supporting files. Your choice of layout does not affect the cost.
The Spreadsheet layout contains one column for each financial center. The first column contains the date, with each subsequent column indicating the status of each day in the respective center. The centers are identified in the top row by a proprietary three-letter code whose specifications are set out in a supporting file. AtS represents Athens Stock Exchange trading holidays, CrX is the Egyptian Exchange settlement holidays, etc.
Every cell contains one of three entries: A "g" for a good business day; a "w" for a weekend; or a number for a holiday. For example, the Athens Stock Exchange had one trading holiday during the period, on February 15. If you need to know the name of the holiday, you can reference one of the supporting files, which would tell you that the number 307 corresponds to "Monday in Lent".
The sample above shows the same underlying data as in the Spreadsheet example. The left-hand column contains the date; the middle column the three-letter identifier for the center; and the right-hand column the status of that day in that center, with a "w" indicating a weekend and a number indicating a holiday.
For example, the first 11 rows show that February 14 was a weekend, while rows 24 and 25 show that February 19 was a weekend in two other centers. Rows 12 through 23 show various holidays on February 15-18.

We can also format the data with customized delimiters. Please let us know if you have special requirements.
No matter which layout you select, you will receive a number of supporting files, including several lookup tables and full technical specifications.
