Note on changes to the online download facility effective from 25 March 2009 

The South African Reserve Bank (Bank) disseminates data through different channels. One of these is the online download facility available on the Bank's website, which allows users to download data.

The objective of this note is to inform the online download facility users about the changes that have been made to this facility in order for it to be more user-friendly, improve efficiency, minimise downloading time and align it with best practice.

Particular attention is drawn to the following improvements: viewing graph(s), deleting or adding selected time series, displaying time-series frequencies, exporting data to Excel and the fixing time-series code prefix 'KBP'.
