The text version contains two tab-delimited files, one with corporations data and the other with governing persons. The first row has the column names. Please use the UBI field to relate the persons to the respective corporation. 

The XML contains all the data in one file. Governing persons are nested within the corporation data. 

Because the files are so large, it is recommended that you use software that can import large amounts of data. Excel or other spreadsheet software generally will not work. It is recommended that you use desktop database software (such as Access) or an enterprise database server solution (mySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, etc.).
