TRK File

Concordance stores tag and tag history information in the .trk file.  You can review the .trk file at a given time to review all tags currently set in the database.   The .trk file includes three sections:

Index Section - These records begin with a hash mark (#).  These records show how many tags a document has applied to it. For example, if there are 10 documents in a database with three tags applied to each document, then there would be 30 records in this section.

Tag List - These records begin with a dollar sign ($).  One record exists for each unique tag name in the database.  If there were three tags in the database, there would be three records in the tag list.

Tag History - These records begin with a plus or minus sign (+ or -).  These records identify added and deleted tags.


In the .TRK file, personal folders and the tags in the folder are preceded by the » character and the user's Windows login or security user ID.
