This company's product line includes some special fabrics that are made to precise specifications. All the data in the files are fictitious.

Note:   The files are designed to show how the SAS/ACCESS interface treats data stored in PC files. They are not meant as examples for you to follow in designing files for any purpose.  [cautionend]
