The Bank Master in ASCII or Excel format is an extract of the daily updated Swiss Bank Master.

The file is ideal for updating existing bank master data in software programs relating to IIDs in credit, debit, and general payment traffic applications.

The file may be downloaded either in text (ASCII) or in Excel format. The text file contains capital and lower case letters, umlaut and special characters. Each entry consists of a record with fixed-length field, ending with carriage return and linefeed (CR/LF). The records are sorted in ascending order according to IIDs (cf. record description). The contents of the two files are the same. The text file shows a separate title line.

As an alternative to the Bank Master the Electronic Index is at disposal as a reference in the form of an offline inquiry.
