Download via FTP

With FTP access, you may save large data files for download via FTP.

Note: If you need to download large amounts of data, contact and ask for an FTP account.

To download the current table or worksheet via FTP:

  1. In an open table or worksheet, click Download... > Via FTP.
  2. Specify a file name and various file attributes (e.g., delimiter, whether to include column headers, etc.)
  3. Click Submit.

    The system will create the file in your FTP folder.

    For large downloads, it may take the system some time to create the file. Normally, once the file is created, the system will notify you to that effect. If, however, your browser loses the connection before such notification (e.g., in the event of a proxy-server or firewall timeout), be aware that the system will continue to create the file. If you wait a sufficient amount of time and then log onto your FTP account, you should see the file there.

    Note: Logging into the user interface to start a new session will end your previous session and stop the file creation.
  4. Log onto your FTP account and download the file.
