File created by Analysis Studio, a program used for data mining and statistical analysis; contains the project schema and project objects in an XML format; holds the actions, data transformations, and variables that allow a data set to be reconstructed from an original data set.
When Analysis Studio is in online mode, data may downloaded and reconstructed from a remote Analysis Server. When in offline mode, .DATA files stored on the local machine are used.
Plain text file created by RoboHelp, a Windows help authoring program; saves a stop list which contains keywords that the Smart Index wizard ignores when creating the help documentation search index; can only be 512 characters long; created as part of a RoboHelp project (.XPJ).
Stop lists usually contain words such as "the," "or," and "a." These are words that typically aren't useful to index as keywords for help documentation searches.
