text file

The United States ZIP Code data files are ASCII, comma separated value (CSV) text files. Each file contains a single header row followed by multiple data rows. Each row is terminated with a carriage return line feed character pair. Each data field is separated with a single comma character. If the field data contains one or more commas then the field is encapsulated with an opening and closing double quote character.

Each file name ends with the file extension ".txt" or ".csv". Though intended to be imported into an SQL or similar database this data can be easily viewed with any text editor.
