Analysts and "watchers" of the Spanish economy wishing to have time series in a spreadsheet format, or loaded on to a database, can download files with the full time series relating to the tables of the Boletín.
A ZIP file of approximately 5 MB can be downloaded which, once decompressed, gives access to a batch of files whose characteristics are described in the user's manual. There are more than 8000 full time series relating to the content of the Boletín.
The user's manual describes the structure of this file, which contains an entry for each series with its identification key, the name of the file in which it is included and the related metainformation (description and frequency of the series, type of variable, unit code, number of decimal points, date of first and latest observation, sources, notes, etc.)
On the contents of the Boletín, an icon can be seen alongside the heading for each chapter. Clicking on this icon enables a ZIP file to be downloaded which, once compressed, provides a set of files whose contents are the series relating to each of the tables making up the chapter.
Access can be gained through the contents of the Boletín to a series of icons featuring alongside the description of the tables making up the various chapters of the Boletín. These icons allow a CSV file to be downloaded which contains the full time series relating to the table. Once this file is on the user's computer disk, a double click on its name will enable it to be directly downloaded onto an EXCEL spreadsheet.
